The Osage Nation Women, Infant and Children’s Program hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new clinic in North Tulsa on Monday.

In attendance at the ceremony were Osage Nation Principal Chief Geoffrey M. Standing Bear, Osage Nation Assistant Chief Raymond Redcorn, members of the Osage Nation Congress, TriArch Architects and Builders Unlimited were present as the project contractors. A prayer ceremony was recited by Vann Bighorse.

“The new clinic offers more resources and services to mothers and children of Osage County,” said Standing Bear. “The staff there is phenomenal and will be of great help to those in need.”

The 3,000-square-foot clinic offers families a place to find resources such as breastfeeding and nutrition tips in a more efficiently designed space to provide even better customer service. The non-commercial kitchen will prepare recipes using WIC foods and offer samples to families encouraging creative and inventive ways to prepare meals at home. The clinic will also have a dedicated play area inside lobby and reception.

Osage Nation WIC provides services at six clinic sites throughout the Osage Reservation or Osage County and serves approximately 2,930 low-income pregnant women, infants, and children under age five.

“We’re excited to open doors to Osage families in need,” said Osage Nation WIC Program Director Manon Taylor. “We welcome all families and want them to feel comfortable and the staff to provide the best customer service.”

The clinic is located 902 W. 36th Street North, just across the street from the Osage Casino.
