Indian Health at El Reno reopens
A grand opening and blessing ceremony for the new El Reno Indian Health Center were held over the weekend at 1801 Parkway Dr. in El Reno.
The opening of operations at the El Reno center was Monday.
Closure of the tribal medical services in the El Reno area was due to significant tornado damage which the former center suffered May 23 of last year.
The tornado was identified as an EF5 with measured wind velocities exceeding 295 mph.
Cheyenne and Arapaho tribal authorities said, “Many hours of hard work and collaboration between the tribes and the Clinton Indian Health Services this past year have enabled reestablishing of medical services in the El Reno area.”
