From its beginnings as a small outpatient clinic in 1939, Verde Valley Medical Center in Cottonwood has grown into a full-service, 99-bed, nonprofit hospital serving North Central Arizona. Four locations... more serve the Verde Valley and surrounding communities: Cottonwood campus, Sedona campus, Camp Verde Health Center, and Village of Oak Creek Health Center. More than 800 professional and support staff are employed at VVMC. The Medical Staff is comprised of nearly 100 physicians representing 25 medical specialties.
VVMC is accredited by DNV Healthcare - the newest hospital accreditation organization approved by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) - and is licensed by the State of Arizona. We are a member of Northern Arizona Healthcare, which also serves patients through Flagstaff Medical Center, Northern Arizona Homecare and Northern Arizona Hospice.
VVMC is governed by a voluntary board of directors comprised of local citizens representing their communities. All revenue in excess of expenses is returned to the community in the form of improved facilities, new equipment and services, recruitment and retention, and health education programs. Our vision of VVMC is to be the best regional medical center in the country. This vision is shared by the team of the Board of Directors, Administration, the Medical Staff and our colleagues.
My grandmother was removed from life support in the ICU there two weeks ago and the staff was very kind and accommodating. Cinna and Sarah were great at keeping us updated with information and Dr. Livingston... more was also amazing. There were more people whose names I don't recall that helped ease this transition. It was a great experience considering.
I went to ER for nausea and doctor seemed like an incompetent young one who didn't know what to do- When I refused to get morphine as it's unrelated to what I was feeling, they were super disrespectful... more and left me behind for awhile. After awhile I called for something to help me, then Dr came back and said you don't want morphine.. im like... it's because it's not that kind of pain.. it's nausea. so I later agreed to morphine just to get some attention. the whole time I felt disrespected, unattended, disgusted. I never felt like that at ERs before. Then I ended up being charged over 10K. Super rude and worse experience ever
