Northern Arizona VA Health Care System
The Northern Arizona VA Health Care System (NAVAHCS) includes the main medical facility, the Bob Stump VA Medical Center in Prescott, Arizona and five Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) in Anthem, Kingman, Lake Havasu City, Flagstaff, Cottonwood, and Telehealth Clinic in Holbrook, Arizona. The Bob Stump VA Medical Center is the largest veteran health care facility within a 60,000 square mile area and is the fourth largest employer in the area. This facility is located in the mountains of north central Arizona, 96 miles northwest of Phoenix, in a tri-city community of approximately 100,000 people. The area is not highly industrialized and is noted for clean air, sunshine and relatively mild climate. As part of the Sunbelt, it is an area of rapid population growth, particularly for retired people and families raising young children.
NAVAHCS provides a continuum of primary and secondary level medical, rehabilitative and long-term care to veterans residing in northern Arizona. Acute medical care consists of primary and secondary inpatient medicine and ambulatory care, which includes general medicine, ambulatory surgery, mental hygiene, and selected specialized outpatient clinics. Primary level ambulatory care and screening services are provided at the main hospital, five CBOC, and one telemedicine sites. Rehabilitative care consists of a rehabilitation medicine unit, an outpatient substance abuse treatment program, vocational rehabilitation/job training program and a very active outpatient rehabilitative therapy program. Long term care consists of a Community Living Center (CLC), a Geriatric Evaluation, and Management Program (GEM and Domiciliary). Dementia, Hospice and Respite are programs offered in the CLC. Domiciliary care is a residential rehabilitation program that provides short-term rehabilitative care and long-term maintenance for veterans who require minimal medical and mental health care. Rehabilitative Care is directed towards the development of skills necessary for return to community-based living.
Routine and non-emergent care, inpatient surgical and complex medical and diagnostic procedures are referred to the VA facilities located in Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. Emergent cases are referred to other VA and private sector health care facilities throughout the VA Contract Hospital Program.
NAVAHCS participates in student training programs in nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, social work, psychology, pharmacy and laboratory sciences.
