Scope of Services

The Shiprock Service Unit (SRSU) is the largest geographical service-unit of Navajo Area Indian Health Service (NAIHS). SRSU population extends into New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. The scope of SRSU’s responsibility is extensive and includes administrative oversight of one hospital: NNMC and two health centers: Four Corners Regional Health Center and Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle Health Center.

NNMC was opened on February 3, 1995 and is the main administrative center and medical center for SRSU. NNMC is a 60 bed medical center and has one of the largest patient volumes in the NAIHS.

NNMC provides the following primary and specialty care services in inpatient and outpatient care services: medical-surgical, pediatric inpatient, labor and delivery, intensive care units, internal medicine, family practice, urgent and emergency care, women's health, mental health, pharmacy, optometry, dental, radiology, public health nursing, medical social services, health promotion/disease prevention and traditional medicine.

The NNMC Emergency Department (ED) provides emergency medical treatment 24 hours a day, seven days a week to patients of all ages. In 2021, NNMC Emergency Room was designated as a Level IV trauma center. This designation increases access to trauma care in a rural setting and ensures optimal care to those who are seriously injured. Furthermore, the NNMC ED is certified as Peds Ready by the New Mexico Emergency Medical Services for Children and the University of New Mexico Child Ready Program. This certification ensures effective emergency care for children.
