Crownpoint Health Care Facility

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 32 bed hospital. The daily inpatient load is nine; daily outpatient visits are 151; annual OB cases are 275; and annual ER cases number about 5,500.

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.
