Cancer Treatment Centers of America

The Muscogee Nation is buying the shuttered Cancer Treatment Centers of America hospital at 81st Street and U.S. 169 in Tulsa.

The National Council voted 12–0 Thursday to approve a $40 million purchase plan. The tribe will pay $5 million up front and lease the 300,000-square foot facility for $500,000 a month until closing.

Muscogee Nation Secretary of Health Shawn Terry said they’re already figuring out what needs to be upgraded or changed.

"I think we could easily be seeing patients in early July, from an outpatient standpoint," Terry said.

The Muscogee Nation

The Muscogee Nation this week announced a rebranding, centering its public image around "Muscogee" -- not "Creek."
