Residents of Muskogee and others parts of eastern Oklahoma are covered when it comes to health-care facilities and top-notch medical care. Here are a few options.
Since 1979, the Cardiology Clinic of Muskogee (CCOM) Medical Group has been offering patients an accessible facility for treating minor illnesses or injuries to more serious and complex health issues.
It has a convenient walk-in clinic that is open five days a week. It also offers scheduled medical appointments and a variety of on-site diagnostic testing services. These services include general X-ray, bone densitometry X-ray, cardiac testing and rehabilitation, cardiac and general nuclear testing, and laboratory services.
CCOM Medical Group also has a satellite clinic in Eufaula and a pediatric clinic in Muskogee.
VA Medical Center

Its inpatient and outpatient medical programs include cardiology, dentistry, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, hospice and palliative care, nephrology, neurology, oncology, optometry, orthopedics, pharmacy, polytrauma, prosthetics, psychiatric care, pulmonology, radiology, recreation therapy, rehabilitation, surgery, telehealth, urology and visual impairment.

EASTAR Health System
Whether it’s the main campus on Rockefeller Drive or the east campus on North Main Street, the EASTAR Health System is providing eastern Oklahoma with comprehensive care and has the ability to treat almost any medical condition. The system, which is fully accredited by The Joint System, has a total of 320 beds on the two campuses.
Formerly the Muskogee Regional Medical Center, the main campus was one of the first hospitals in Oklahoma. It is now one of the state’s largest, with a nationally accredited cancer program, Level III trauma center, and primary stroke center. The east campus, originally Muskogee Community Hospital, opened in 2009 as the first hospital in the nation to earn LEED-Gold for New Construction.
EASTAR’s Trauma Center has been recognized for outstanding performance and dedication from Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa.
The system also recently launched a Center for Obesity Treatment, with the goal of achieving a Center of Excellence (COE) designation.
