The Sells Indian Hospital is a 14-bed facility with The Joint Commission accreditation and is physically located off of Arizona State Route 86, 60 miles west of Tucson in the Sells District of the Tohono... more O'odham Nation.
A professional staff of physicians, physician assistants, dentists, nurses, podiatrists, optometrists, and auxiliary technical support personnel administer both inpatient and ambulatory services. Specialties include internal medicine, pediatrics, and family practice. Emergency services are provided and critical-care patients are transferred to one of several Tucson or Phoenix area hospitals. As a group, the Tohono O'odham have one of the highest occurrences of Type II Diabetes in the world. The study, treatment, and prevention of diabetes is a major concern. Diabetes Prevention Programs are in place in the schools and community, a collaborative effort with the Tohono O'odham Health Department. The programs, including several rural field units, are geared toward educating in methods of coping with and preventing the disease.
Management is extremely hostile, manipulative, dishonest, and apathetic. Nursing management acts vindictively towards staff frequently at all levels of leadership. Since... more the tribe went sovereign the hospital lost more than half it's staff. Whats left is a more broken systems run by unprofessional people or those who are vastly under qualified for their station. It's not worth the drive for the pay. With the end reward of complete emotional and professional burn out.
It's okay for normal check up if nothing is wrong with you. They care for elders way more then teens and young adults. The emergency room is semi racists toward white people. They are very messy at drawing... more blood. I'm pretty sure I have blood clots waiting to kill me. The hospital has this idea that ibuprofen will solve everything. They try as little as possible cause there's probably no money to waste on people who been there constantly. They are setting us up for death.
