Purcell Municipal Hospital
Since 1970, the Purcell Municipal Hospital has been serving Purcell, Oklahoma, and the surrounding communities. In 2020, the hospital broke ground on a new 30,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art hospital. The hospital includes procedure rooms, CT scans, ultrasound, endoscopy, x-ray, nuclear medicine, and laboratory spaces. The hospital also includes an attached emergency department and an inpatient wing.
