Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) and Dignity Health are currently involved in discussions to evaluate a potential collaboration between the two organizations. YRMC, with acute care hospitals in Prescott and Prescott Valley, primary and specialty care clinics, and extensive outpatient services, has been serving western Yavapai County since 1943.

“Yavapai Regional Medical Center is pleased to explore opportunities to collaborate with a world-class health system like Dignity Health,” states John Amos, President and CEO, Yavapai Regional Medical Center. “There are great synergies between the two organizations. We share common values and a commitment to best-practice healthcare, and like YRMC, Dignity Health’s commitment to serving the healthcare needs of Arizonans spans generations.”

YRMC’s Board of Directors and Administrative Council recently made the decision to evaluate how a relationship with a larger health system could help YRMC expand healthcare in the Quad City region. Should both organizations choose to move forward with a relationship, YRMC would gain access to Dignity Health’s impressive talent and resources to ensure a robust and growing healthcare system for acute care, pediatric care and high-access specialty services for western Yavapai County.

“This opportunity has tremendous potential to help YRMC advance healthcare in our region,” adds Amos. “Being part of a system that includes a Level-One Trauma Center, Barrow Neurological Institute, Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, and the Cancer Center at St. Joseph’s would add great value to the high-quality healthcare we already provide to those in our region.”

Discussions are ongoing between both organizations and a decision regarding collaboration is expected this summer.
