The Navajo Hopi Health Foundation in Tuba City, Arizona, supports the Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation (TCRHCC), a non-profit whose care facilities serve as a regional referral medical center for over 75,000 Native Americans.
The facilities include a hospital and satellite clinics where they provide Family Medicine, multiple medical specialist and dental services. TCRHCC is a level-3 trauma hospital and has onsite helicopter service.

The New York Times, Washington Times, and MSNBC™ have featured TCRHCC's physicians because of their exemplary medical care. Our innovative medical treatments exceed some of America's top hospitals, but TCRHCC still lacks many comforts most Americans expect from local hospitals, like comfortable seating areas. Over 24,000 patients come to the hospital each year, many who commonly are from far away and modest means.
Essential Services We Provide
As the sole provider of long-term care, trauma care, and helicopter medical rescue on the Navajo Reservation, the 73-bed acute care hospital is the only one of its kind on a Native American reservation in the United States. Clinicians and professionals serve our population by using donor funds as efficiently as possible. The hospital provides a full range of services, including sugery, dental, optometry, and pharmacy and more:
Joint Replacement | Diabetic Wound Care | Minimally Invasive Gynecology Procedures | Vaginal Birth | After-Cesarean Section Care
Mobile Health Care
To better serve our population, the hospital has two mobile health care units that supplement primary health care to the reservation's most remote locations. More than half of all homes in these areas lack plumbing, electricity, and a telephone, and 80 percent of all roads are unimproved dirt roads that are seasonally inaccessible.
Ways to Give
The need to expand medical services often leaves no extra money for basic interior improvements for the facilities beyond life safety and medical equipment requirements. Please consider helping out the foundation this year with charitable donations to improve indigenous health care.
