Healthcare for the Hoopa Valley
K’ima:w Medical Center, a robust ambulatory healthcare service for the greater Hoopa Valley, has been in operation since 1974. The medical center is accredited by The Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit national body that oversees the safety and quality of healthcare and other services provided in accredited organizations.
For years the tribal health clinic was called “Hoopa Health Association”. The name was officially changed in 1998 to K’ima:w Medical Center. K’ima:w means “good medicine” in the Hoopa language.
Our people tell it best

Angela Pratt, Fiscal Acct. Tech-Accounts Payable: “I like working at K’ima:w because not only are we an organization that helps our community (our families), but we are also a family within our organization.”
