Welcome to the Navajo Area of the Indian Health Service
The Navajo Area of the Indian Health Service (NAIHS) is responsible for the delivery of health services to American Indians in portions of the states of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, known as the Four Corners region. The Navajo Area is primarily responsible for providing health care services to members of The Navajo Nation and Southern Band of San Juan Paiutes, but care to other Native Americans (Zuni, Hopi) is also provided.
Comprehensive health care is provided by the Navajo Area through inpatient, outpatient, contract and community health programs centered around six hospitals, seven health centers and 15 health stations.
A major portion of the NAIHS health care delivery system is sponsored by the Navajo Tribe itself, which operates the Navajo Division of Health (NDOH) in Window Rock, AZ. The NDOH’s mission is to ensure that high-quality and culturally acceptable health care is available and accessible to Native Americans through coordination, regulation and, where necessary, direct service delivery.
