TCRHCC was initially a 65-bed U.S. Public Health Service hospital built in 1954 and known as
the Tuba City Indian Medical Center. It was part of the Navajo Area Indian Health Service. In
1975, the present 73-bed hospital was completed, and the initial 1954 building that housed the
Tuba City Indian Medical Center was converted to administrative offices, support services,
facility maintenance, audiology, and other programs.

In 2002, Tuba City Indian Medical Center became a P.L. 93-638 health care facility and renamed
the Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation. Today, TCRHCC has nearly 1,000 total
employees and is guided by a ten-member governing body that includes representation from the
Hopi village of Moencopi, the San Juan Southern Paiute tribe, and Navajo communities within
the 6,000-acre service area.

The mission of TCRHCC is to provide safe, accessible, quality, and culturally sensitive
healthcare. The vision is: “to heal, to respect, to console.”

The following value statement has been adopted:“We take pride and honor the dignity in all individuals. We promise to uphold a safe environment, dedicated to quality, and a vision of excellence for today and tomorrow.”
