The Transition Team at Yellowhawk Tribal Health Center is committed to keeping all Yellowhawk employees, patients, and community members informed on this important move into our new clinic.
If you have questions, concerns or comments please email: NewYellowhawk@yellowhawk.org
What will be the size of the new clinic?
The approximate size of the new clinic is 60K square feet. To give some perspective, the current clinic is approximately 21K square feet. Due to growth in the past five years, we have staff in four other buildings, which makes our total footprint about 33K square feet.
Today we simply do not have any more space for new employees, much less for growth of services. Working with demographers we feel the 60K square feet will bring us all back under one roof and allow for growth.
Where will the new clinic be located?
The CTUIR Health Commission and the Board of Trustees agreed that the new clinic will be built on a piece of ground just west of the Nixyaawii Governance Center. The property is referred to as the ‘Bowman property’ shown here:
How will I get to my appointments? I currently walk to the clinic.
We are conducting a survey to find out how our patients get to their appointments at Yellowhawk. We’re working to make sure there is adequate transportation for those who need it. Please take a moment to complete the survey using this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YTHCtransportationsurvey
