We are the Phoenix Area Indian Health Service. We provide health care and community health services to approximately 140,000 American Indians/Alaska Natives in the tri-state area of Arizona, Nevada, and... more Utah. Through ten Service Units including two Youth Regional Treatment Centers and a network of heath care facilities, we are a health care partner to over forty tribes.
Our Area Office is based in Phoenix, Arizona, where 197 administrative and technical staff contribute to the success of our mission to raise the physical, mental, social, and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level. Our Service Units employ over 2,400 staff. Our system of care includes IHS- and tribally-operated health care facilities that serve tribal communities as well as three Urban Indian health programs. These services are comprehensive and range from primary care (inpatient and outpatient) to tertiary care and specialty services. In addition, dental services, behavioral health, public health nursing, health education, and environmental health services are provided.
Our largest health care facility is the Phoenix Indian Medical Center (PIMC), located near downtown Phoenix. This Joint Commission accredited 127-bed hospital employs nearly 1,200 people to provide a comprehensive range of specialty services to both urban and rural tribal members. In addition, PIMC professional staff travels throughout the states in the Phoenix Area region, providing direct services and consultation and guidance to other IHS hospitals and health centers.
I’ve been going to this hospital my whole life and always had a good experience. This past month I’ve had to make a couple appointments in the Women’s clinic and it’s finally led up to getting... more my surgery today which was my first. I was nervous but the nurses and doctors were reassuring, lighthearted and professional. Dr. Kohr is the best. She’s been so professional and definitely knows what she’s doing. The staff is always polite and friendly. I feel confident in what they do and I’m grateful! Thank you PIMC!
I regularly go to this hospital. I have insurance and could go somewhere else but I choose to come here. I think most people don’t understand that IHS is socializing medicine, there is going to be a... more long wait for some visits, there isn’t a lot of money flowing through here because, guess what? You don’t pay anything out of pocket for any services. Yes, customer service isn’t like Chick-fil-a, but just be nice and they will return the favor. For the most part, I have great interaction with people even those who were having a bad day, all I did was smile and had some patience. I have had few bad interactions with some doctors, and have decided not to ever get appointments with them. I have that choice. To be fair, I have also had horrible experiences with private sector doctors as well, so go figure it’s every where! All in all I would recommend going here, the midwives are spectacular!! Wouldn’t have my children anywhere else! The dental has been great for my children and same day surgery is great! Pediatrics has some good doctors but also has some doctors that are very judgmental and belittling, esp of alternative medicine.
I have been to this facility 3 times and had great service every time. The Doctors and the staff at the Star Clinic, Pharmacy and the Dental Clinic were all great and friendly! My son has been several... more times as well and always receives great service. Also, I am so happy that they have the Star Clinic so that when you have to see a doctor on the weekend you don't have to wait in the ER. Thank you all making it a great experience!
