Care that comes through every day.
While the achievements of Share Medical Center (SMC) have not garnered great fanfare, they are remarkable all the same. As small rural healthcare systems in Oklahoma and across the nation have struggled to keep their doors open, Share Medical Center in Alva hasn’t just survived, it has thrived, with a recent $7 million expansion and the continued addition of specialty services.
SMC’s dependable, focused care has earned the appreciation of the community it serves—a feeling that is mutual. The enthusiastic support of the region has been an integral factor in the hospital’s success in offering state-of-the-art services across multiple care areas.

- Cardiology and endocrinology care and cataract surgery
- Surgical procedures such as diagnostic and surgical laparotomy and laparoscopy, D&C (dilation & curettage), and carpal tunnel release
- Occupational health

Emergency Services: A Level IV Trauma Center, SMC’s Emergency Department has been certified by the state of Oklahoma as a primary stroke center and is staffed with physician service 24/7. All staffers are ACLS certified for Advanced Cardiac Life Support and the hospital’s 30-minute transfer guarantee assures immediate care for even the most critical cases.
