In 1910, Drs. G. W. Sammons and A. M. Smith opened an eight-bed hospital to serve the needs of the surrounding community. A century later, San Juan Regional Medical Center continues to provide healthcare to the Four Corners region with 250 licensed beds, nearly 1,700 compassionate employees, and a unique community corporation made up of about 180 members with a direct say in the hospital's future.
SJRMC's mission is to personalize healthcare and create enthusiasm and vitality in healing. As a hospital, employees follow five core values: Sacred Trust, Personal Reverence, Thoughtful Anticipation, Team Accountability, and Creative Vitality.
With cultural traditions and natural landscapes in mind, we have accommodated our hospital to meet the needs of our community. With the new tower entrance that faces the east, we've also built fresh-air balconies for new patient rooms, several circular meditation rooms, and an outdoor healing garden with the "Hope" sculpture to provide comfortable environments for our patients and visitors.
SJRMC is designated a Level III Trauma Center and provides air ambulance services with a helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft. The hospital seeks to meet the healthcare needs of the whole community through a very broad range of medical, surgical, and rehabilitation services. In addition to those services, the hospital also provides a childbirth center, cancer center, nephrology unit, pediatric unit, inpatient behavioral health unit, day surgery center, and extensive imaging and lab testing services.
We operate several offsite facitilies to bring primary and specialty care closer to home for our patients and community.
