Yavapai Regional Medical Center to join the Dignity Health Arizona Division

Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) has entered into an affiliation agreement to join the Dignity Health Arizona Division. This alignment brings together two leading health care systems with a shared vision and values and a commitment to provide accessible, affordable and innovative health services to the communities served by YRMC.   

The affiliation will scale best-in-class clinical services, recruit and retain additional primary care providers as well as top medical specialists, and align clinical operations to improve delivery of care. It will also bring to Yavapai County innovative medical technologies and treatments as well as collaborative initiatives with existing community resources that will expand YRMC’s ability to effectively serve and advocate for all people. 

Dignity Health in Arizona currently operates six acute-care hospitals in the Phoenix-area, including St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center which is home to renowned Barrow Neurological Institute, Norton Thoracic Institute and the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center. The division also offers comprehensive health care services, including clinics, specialty hospitals, urgent cares, insurance providers, an accountable care organization and other clinical and community partnerships. 

“This affiliation will enhance the delivery of health care services to the residents of Yavapai County,” says Linda Hunt, President and CEO of the Dignity Health Arizona Division. “Dignity Health has a strong and unwavering commitment to the communities we serve. We are devoted to delivering compassionate and excellent medical care for residents throughout Yavapai County.” 

In addition to providing leading acute care services and expanding access to health care, the affiliation will focus on reinvesting in the community through grants and the creation of clinical programs to keep aging populations and people suffering from chronic illnesses healthier. Dignity Health in Arizona provides millions of dollars annually in community benefit. 

“Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s strong commitment to the Quad Cities will not change,” says John Amos, President and CEO of Yavapai Regional Medical Center. “We believe that together, we will be able to build on our position of strength and expand YRMC’s current offering of health care services and resources to create an even stronger future of support for the people and communities in western Yavapai County.”

Leadership from both organizations will continue to work closely to ensure consistent, thoughtful alignment. The transition is expected to occur late this year, subject to the completion of regulatory and licensing approvals and other closing conditions.
