DURANT — The Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations are taking steps to transfer full operation of a tribal health clinic in Durant to the Choctaw Nation.
The Choctaw Nation currently owns the building, but the clinic is staffed by the Chickasaw Nation.
Tribal leaders say the agreement calls for the clinic’s operation to be entirely managed by the Choctaw Nation beginning Oct. 1.
Tribal officials say the only immediate change that patients may notice is that the seal of the Choctaw Nation will be placed on the door of the facility.
