New Facility and Services Coming Soon to Poteau
The Health & Wellness Center has purchased 35 Acres and will be relocating the current Poteau Health and Wellness Center located at 204 Wall Street to its new location at 1120 Tarby Road near the Poteau Wal-Mart Supercenter. We have been working closely with architect, Michael Riley, the Planning Commission, and the City of Poteau on this project. The City of Poteau continues to be supportive and we appreciate their input on all tasks we have asked of them. David Knowlton, Project Manager for the Health & Wellness Center, will be overseeing the Poteau project and we are excited to use various local contractors and businesses throughout each phase of the building process to make this multi-million dollar project happen. The project will include a new 24,000 square foot Medical & Behavioral Health Facility which will also include an 7500 square foot Residential Substance Use Disorder Treatment Facility for patients. The Residential Treatment portion will include 10 duplexes with housing for 4 patients per duplex, and 3 Student Housing units for Medical Residents and Interns. We also have future plans to build a conference center and add 10 additional duplexes in the second phase of the build. We are proud to be part of the Poteau community and are committed to this expansion and the patients it will serve.
