Who We Are
Welcome to the Health System of the Absentee Shawnee Tribe.
We have three convenient locations serving the healthcare needs of Native Americans, SoonerCare members, American Indian Veterans and insured AST employees with a wide range of services for all ages.
We are proud to bring to the Native American community a new era of healthcare not only in the physical sense – with new buildings and facilities and technology – but in the philosophical sense as well. We are committed to setting in motion a new era of healthcare; one that will redefine the standards by which we have both received care and cared for ourselves.
We provide a culturally-sensitive, quality health care system for American Indians and Alaska Natives, which leads to health promotion and disease prevention through a multi-disciplinary team using holistic and evidence-based practices that address all health issues and educational needs while protecting individual confidentiality.
We are a provider of choice for eligible patients seeking a comprehensive health service system while promoting continuous quality improvement within our programs.
We partner with eligible patients and co-workers by improving their health status with respect and dignity, promoting healthy lifestyles that impact their family and community and insuring respect for their culture, tradition and beliefs.
The ASTHS will provide service to those who are determined to be eligible for services. It is the policy of the Absentee Shawnee Tribal Health System (ASTHS) to provide medical and health-related services to those deemed eligible based on federal, state, and/or grant participation. Services are primarily provided for American Indians and Alaskan Natives (AI/AN).
