Unadiwisdi Health Center Under Construction
Cherokee Nation Unadiwisdi Health Center - its Cherokee name translates to "where they get well" - will be a 90,000 square-foot facility that will expand healthcare services throughout the northeastern part of the Cherokee Nation.
“This is an exciting time for Cherokees and all American Indians in this area as we watch further advancement of our healthcare system,”

The health center will provide services such as dental, radiology, a wellness center, physical therapy, public health nursing, optometry and pharmacy.
