Hillcrest Hospital Pryor is proud to serve Pryor and the surrounding communities. When you place your health in our hands, we take that responsibility to heart. The elimination of hospital acquired infections has been a top priority. When patients are hospitalized, their risk of acquiring an infection during that hospitalization increases.
