Lawton Community Health Center (LCHC) and Comanche County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) have partnered with the city of Elgin and their Economic Development Authority to expand medical services in Oklahoma, US.
Through this collaboration, LCHC and CCMH aim to provide additional healthcare services for the residents of Elgin as well as the surrounding areas.
Under this expansion project, they plan to establish an urgent care clinic, a new primary care clinic, imaging, laboratory, and space for rotating specialty services.
A contract has already been signed by all the parties to move ahead with the project for which the Elgin Economic Development Authority is contributing the land.
Meanwhile, LCHC will oversee the development and construction of the new facilities, aiming to increase capacity and improve service for local families.
The initial phase of this project will involve the development of the primary and urgent care clinics.

Elgin Mayor JJ Francais said: “I have worked since day one to expand access to healthcare in Elgin. What began as a fight to get an ambulance service based out of Elgin to what has developed into a seven-acre medical park. This will help improve the health outcomes of our residents and will also enable them to stay in Elgin long past retirement.”

The current LCHC facility is located at 7936 US-277 in Eglin. Across Southwest Oklahoma, LCHC operates 22 clinic locations with 80 providers dedicated to serving local families.
