The Lawton Service Unit is comprised of the Anadarko Clinic, the Carnegie Clinic and the Lawton Indian Hospital. We provide healthcare services to over 25,000 members of the Caddo, Comanche, Delaware, Fort Sill Apache, Kiowa, Apache, and Wichita tribes are concentrated in the ten counties in the southwestern corner of Oklahoma where the weather is generally mild. Although mountains and small lakes adorn the rugged landscape, this is great plains country. The Lawton Indian Hospital is a full service hospital situated in Oklahoma's third largest metropolitan area. Lawton Fort Sill serves as a prominent shopping, medical, recreational, educational and religious center for the region. It is the retail and distribution center for the area's cattle, dairy and agricultural industries. The city of Lawton-Ft. Sill, only 85 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, has a population of roughly 100,000. Surrounded by mountains and small lakes, the city enjoys a stable economy, largely due to the 26,000 service personnel on active duty at Fort Sill and an equal number of former Army members who chose to make Lawton their home after retiring from the service. Anadarko is a community of approximately 6,500 about 50 miles southwest of Oklahoma City and 40 miles north of Lawton, OK. With a staff of 4 full time physicians, the Anadarko health center handles nearly 38,500 outpatients visits each year.
Anadarko has experienced a significant growth pattern over the past 5 years. It is home to a large Native American population and hosts many Native American cultural events such as Pow-wow's. Anadarko offers many restaurants, grocery stores, clothing stores, gasoline stations, florists, a public library, a movie theater, and has excellent educational facilities for children. Anadarko also has access to numerous recreational sites. It is family oriented and friendly, offering many social opportunities for families.
