Eastern Oklahoma State College and Caring Hands Healthcare Centers

Eastern Oklahoma State College and the Caring Hands Healthcare Centers have partnered to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on the college’s Wilburton and McAlester campuses. Caring Hands Healthcare Centers provided rapid and PCR COVID-19 testing for students, faculty and staff through scheduling coordination with the Office of Student Services. Group testing services were also provided to athletic and agricultural teams who needed a negative test to participate in sports/activities. This partnership enabled EOSC’s COVID-19 response coordinators to schedule and manage all testing for students, faculty and staff through one office and one testing location. They provided an efficient and effective process to manage the college’s COVID-19 response, track cases for needed contact tracing and successfully navigate the challenges of a pandemic to provide a safe environment for EOSC. Caring Hands Healthcare Centers provide medical, dental, behavioral health and pharmacy services to citizens of Pittsburg County at locations in McAlester and Hartshorne.
