Spirit of the West
The history of Wickenburg is long and storied. Its trials and tribulations include war, outlaws, economic struggles, and natural disasters. There are also many triumphs. The town is now known as the Team Roping Capital of the World. Tourists come from everywhere to experience wide-open spaces and outdoor adventures. It is one of the oldest towns in Arizona and the hospitality, loyalty, perseverance, and resilience of the Old West are evident even today.
Serving the Community
When Wickenburg Community Hospital was founded in 1926, about 700 people lived here. That number has since grown to 7,500. Thousands of seasonal residents and ropers also relocate annually from colder climates in the winter. Since the beginning, the Hospital has adapted to the needs of the ever-growing community. Today, we are a federally designated Critical Access Hospital and state-designated Level IV Trauma Center serving 30,000 people across 3,300 square miles. We offer a full array of services including: acute care, emergency medicine, urgent care, surgery, three rural health clinics, specialty care, infusion center with chemotherapy, advanced imaging, laboratory services, physical therapy, and a full-service retail pharmacy.
A Legacy of Giving
In partnership with Wickenburg Community Hospital Foundation, the Hospital has grown and adapted to the needs of the community. We have opened a Surgery Center and upgraded the Emergency Department. The Foundation has also obtained funding for a mobile medical clinic to take our services on the road in 2023. It has also funded state-of-the-art equipment to keep our patients close to home.
Give the Gift of Health
Philanthropy is crucial to our ability to grow, adapt, and improve. We rely on the generosity of the community to elevate the health and well-being of Wickenburg. Please join the Hospital and the Foundation and give the gift of health!
