The Inscription House Health Center is part of the Kayenta Service Unit in the Western most part of the Navajo Nation. Inpatient needs are met by referral to the Tuba City Indian Medical Center, which is 65 miles South of Inscription House, Arizona. The Inscription House facility provides 40 hour per week ambulatory care for approximately 7,000 nearby residents. The facility is closed after 5 p.m. on weekdays and is closed on weekends. Most staff live in housing provided by the Indian Health Service.

The facility is staffed by two physicians and two nurse practitioners. In addition to pediatrics, internal medicine and family medicine ambulatory care, services provided include laboratory, pharmacy, dental, mental health, health education, x-ray, and optometry care. As is true for other Navajo Area Indian Health facilities, leading reasons for outpatient visits include respiratory illness, preventive health activities, diabetes, well child exams and prenatal care.

Inscription House is approximately a one hour drive from Page, Arizona, and the Lake Powell National Recreation Area. Additionally, Inscription House is a two hour drive to Flagstaff, Arizona as well as the Grand Canyon National Park (South Rim). 40 minutes away is the Navajo National Park of the U.S. National Park Service.
