Crownpoint Service Unit
The Crownpoint Health Care Facility serves a population of 20,000 Navajo people. The staff consists of primary care physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, at a 20 bed hospital. FY20 showed a daily inpatient load of 4, outpatient visits was 129,239; annual OB visits at 717, and the annual emergency room cases number of about 14,643.
Physicians find they have ample opportunities to practice all the skills they trained for in residency, in multi-speciality, but non-departmental setting with continuous back up from colleagues and excellent nursing support in all areas of the hospital. There are no major surgeries performed on-site. However, based on training, our physicians perform a full spectrum of outpatient invasive and non-invasive procedures.
Crownpoint is located in Northwest New Mexico, on the Eastern edge of the Navajo Reservation, only a few hours drive North to the Southern Rockies, or East to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. World Class skiing is close and the area has superb hiking and fishing opportunities.
Crownpoint Health Care Facility provides many healthcare services to patients in an area covering 4,200 square miles within 4 counties in northwest New Mexico (McKinley, Cibola, Sandoval, and San Juan). We are located on the eastern side of the Navajo Nation, and the vast majority of our patients are Navajo.
Our main facility is located in the community of Crownpoint, population 3,000. However, over 20,000 patients utilize services at our facilities.
Satellite clinics are located at Pueblo Pintado (40 miles to the east) and Thoreau (25 miles south).
