Campaign Updates

1
It's been a busy campaign season, and I've continued to learn a great deal as I've met more fellow residents and heard their input. One key issue that has emerged since I first launched my site involves healthcare.

Our Healthcare Crisis


Sedona is largely dependent Northern Arizona Healthcare (NAH) for physician practices as well as our Emergency Department. Unfortunately NAH is not proving to be an employer that retains its medical professionals, so we're seeing an exodus of qualified providers. Additionally, the leadership of NAH recently informed our city council that they are not necessarily committed to the Emergency Department beyond another 2 to 3 years and are thinking of downgrading it to an urgent care practice. This environment with NAH is untenable, and I strongly believe we need to either gain a commitment from NAH for the long term for providing Emergency services and that they develop some of the surrounding 34 acres they own for the benefit of staff housing. If NAH isn't willing to move in this direction we need to begin the process of looking for a replacement to NAH that will commit to Sedona and the Verde Valley.
