Carla Hayes, APRN

Carla Hayes has been serving as a nurse practitioner with Northeast Oklahoma Heart Center for the past four years. Her passion for healthcare began when she felt personally called to enroll in EMT training in 2002. Since then, she has earned her licensure as Nurse Practitioner and continues to advance her studies in the medical field. Carla brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the organization, and she truly cares about helping others to the best of her ability.

“I chose to continue my medical career in Tahlequah, as this is my home. Working at NOHC has allowed me to give back to my community, provide support and care, and keep loved ones together in the event of a cardiology emergency.”
