As the centerpiece of a 20-acre, $73 million campus-style development, the design of the new Choctaw Nation Regional Medical Clinic in Durant, Okla., pays homage to the culture of native Choctaw Indians who, along with other tribe members, receive care at the new health facility, writes Health Facilities Management.

The 152,118-square-foot clinic captures the spirituality, passion and history of the Choctaw tribe beginning with artist Matthew Placzek's bronze sculptures depicting figures dressed in traditional tribal attire located near the front entrance.

The influence of the Choctaw tribe also is apparent from the many pieces of artwork that adorn the interior walls, exam rooms and clinical spaces with the intent to engage and inspire patients and staff.
