Verde Valley Medical Center
From a small outpatient clinic in 1939, Verde Valley Medical Center in Cottonwood has grown into a full-service, 99-bed, nonprofit hospital serving North Central Arizona. Four locations serve the Verde Valley and surrounding communities: Cottonwood campus, Sedona campus, Camp Verde Health Center, and Village of Oak Creek Health Center. More than 800 professional and support staff are employed at VVMC. The Medical Staff is comprised of nearly 100 physicians representing 25 medical specialties.
VVMC is accredited by *DNV Healthcare, the newest hospital accreditation organization deemed by Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to accredit hospitals, and VVMC is licensed by the State of Arizona. We are a member of Northern Arizona Healthcare, which also serves patients through Flagstaff Medical Center and Northern Arizona Homecare and Hospice.
VVMC is governed by a voluntary board of directors comprised of local citizens representing their local communities. All revenue in excess of expenses is returned to the community in the form of improved facilities, new equipment and services, recruitment and retention, and health education programs. Our vision of VVMC is to be the best regional medical center in the country. This vision is shared by the team of the Board of Directors, Administration, the Medical Staff and our colleagues.
Verde Valley Medical Center is nationally accredited by DNV Healthcare.
*DNV Healthcare Inc. is based in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Det Norske Veritas, a global independent foundation dedicated to safeguarding life, property and the environment. Since receiving its authorization from CMS in 2008, DNV’s process has quickly become recognized for taking a collaborative approach to working with hospitals on quality improvement. That commitment to working together is why more than 200 hospitals around the country have chosen DNV for accreditation. Thirteen hospitals in Arizona have chosen DNV for their accreditation including Verde Valley Medical Center and Flagstaff Medical Center; Casa Grande Regional Medical Center; Florence Community Healthcare and Florence Hospital at Anthem; Kingman Regional Medical Center; Maricopa Integrated Health System; Mountain Vista Medical Center; Scottsdale Healthcare’s Osborn, Shea and Thompson Peak Medical Centers; and St. Luke's Medical Center and Behavioral Health Center.

For the last three years, VVMC has received the Get With The Guidelines Performance Achievement Award in recognition of treating heart patients according to the most up-to-date scientific guidelines. GWTG is a quality-improvement program that helps ensure the care hospitals provide for coronary artery disease, stroke and heart failure is aligned with the latest scientific guidelines. Projections have shown that nationwide implementation of these prevention guidelines, as promoted in the program, could result in saving more than 80,000 lives each year. Although 1,300 hospitals participate in the program, only those receiving an award this year consistently demonstrated at least 85 percent of their eligible patients are discharged following recommended treatments.
VVMC also was awarded the 2007 Employer Excellence Award by the Arizona Nurses Association (AzNA). Only one State healthcare facility is honored with this award once every two years for outstanding support of nursing leadership and creating a professional environment of nursing practice, education and excellence.
