DURANT, OK -- A Bryan County health clinic will be transferred to Choctaw Nation control in three months.

The Choctaw Nation currently owns the Durant Indian Health Clinic building at 1600 N. Washington, but the Chickasaw Nation staffs it.

Chickasaw Gov. Bill Anoatubby and Choctaw Nation Chief Gary Batton signed a memorandum this month agreeing to the transition, according to the Chickasaw Nation.

Patients should see little difference in the clinic's operation, Choctaw Nation official Teresa Jackson says in the statement.

The only immediate change will be that the seal of the Choctaw Nation will be placed on the door.

The tribes partnered in 1996 to provide health care to Native Americans and the change is set to take place on Oct. 1.
