Health Services Administration

Health Services Logo Shaped PNG

The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes partners with Indian Health Service (IHS) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS)  to provide quality healthcare to Wichita enrolled members as well as the Native American communities within the following counties: Caddo, Comanche, Cotton, Grady, Harmon, Jackson, Jefferson, Kiowa, Stephens and Tillman.

 

  • Our first objective is to provide education on nutrition, provide awareness of possible health risks to avoid, and to provide physical activities as a preventative measure against chronic diseases including diabetes.

 

  • Our second objective is to provide an assessment to those clients with a chemical dependency and/or mental health issue and help utilize resources to rehabilitate those individuals.

 

Wichita Health Services now offers Soonercare (Oklahoma Medicaid) Enrollment. To find out the latest Wichita Health Services events and information, read the Wichita Health Services monthly newsletter.
