TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation held the first of a series of health recruitment fairs on Feb. 19 at the Cherokee Nation Ballroom in order to fill more than 60 new positions for the tribe’s 469,000-square-foot outpatient health center on the W.W. Hastings campus in Tahlequah.
“Many of the positions must be filled six months before the health facility opens later this year,” said Economic Development Manager Hunter Palmer. “Physicians, lab technicians, biomedical engineering technicians, facilities and grounds laborers and more positions are now open.”
CN Health Services and CN Career Services will host additional health recruitment fairs throughout the 14 counties in the near future.
Applicants are asked to bring their resumes.
The four-story outpatient health facility is the result of the largest IHS joint-venture agreement ever between a tribe and the federal government. It will be the largest health center of any tribe in the United States.
In total, the new center is expected to bring more than 800 new jobs to the tribe.
