The Muscogee Nation will be purchasing the recently closed Cancer Treatment Centers of America facility located in South Tulsa.

The Muscogee Nation National Council voted 12-0 last Thursday to purchase the facility. Muscogee Nation Secretary of Health Shawn Terry said the facility will offer both inpatient and outpatient services and will be open to both tribal and non-tribal citizens.
 
Outpatient services could be offered as soon as early July. The facility is expected to cost $40 million dollars and provide 100 new jobs. Information about funding was not provided at last week's meeting.
