Demolition has begun in Pawhuska for Osage Nation healthcare facility.
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — Demolition has begun in downtown Pawhuska in preparation for the construction of a new 64,800-square-foot health center.
Crews are demolishing an old Safeway building to put in the new Wahzhazhe Health Center, which will span two blocks.
“This is a monumental step in the right direction for holistic healthcare for Osages and Osage community members,” said Osage Nation Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear. “The property is owned by the Osage Nation. After demolition, we will confidently pass the project along to the Si-Si A-Pe-Txa Board of Directors and Osage Nation Health System Leadership to keep the progress moving forward with our full support.”
