ABOUT GILA RIVER HEALTH CARE
The Gila River Indian Community is the largest Native American community in the Phoenix area and is home to the Akimel O’otham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) people. With the efforts of its forefathers, Gila River Health Care established a healthcare system decades ago to care for the healthcare needs of its people. Today, Gila River Health Care is a vast, self-governed tribal healthcare system that continues on a path to expand its world-class facilities, maintain service excellence, and provide advanced healthcare for Native Americans. Gila River Health Care is focused on its vision and mission statements as these principles emphasize the determination to operationalize a healthcare system that is responsive, respectful, compassionate, and empowering for patients. GRHC provides healthcare services to all Native Americans from federally recognized tribal communities. Services are offered from its three main campuses and additional service points across the seven districts of the Gila River Indian Community. Hu Hu Kam Memorial Hospital serves as the anchor campus and is located in Sacaton, AZ. The Komatke Health Center Campus is located in Laveen, AZ, and provides support to the Ak-Chin Clinic, a GRHC satellite health center located in Maricopa, AZ. In 2018, GRHC opened Hau’pal (Red Tail Hawk) Health Center to serve the needs of urban Native Americans living in the Phoenix area.
