The Tribe has made significant strides in providing healthcare to the Tribal membership. Prior to 1979, Tribal members had great difficulty accessing care, as resources and funding were largely unavailable. Healthcare services on the reservation actually began with a Nurse Practitioner and Mental Health provider one day a month from the federal Indian Health Service (IHS).
In 1993, the Tribe opened a building which housed the new clinic and all health services. In addition, Contract Health Services were added and later an M.D. and nurse began providing medical care on-site a half-day each week. Today we offer clinic services two half-days per week, including labs, immunizations and a diabetes program.
As a result of providing on-site services, there has been a substantial increase in utilization of healthcare. Some of the benefits include increased immunization rates and overall positive health outcomes in a number of areas.
