About MIHS (with Spanish Subtitles)


If you are not familiar with Maricopa
Integrated Health System, or our acronym MIHS, let me take a moment to introduce
you to your community hospital or perhaps refresh your perspective of our
hundred and forty plus years of care. MIHS has a proud tradition of being
both Maricopa County’s safety net health care system, with a mission of providing
exceptional care without exception every patient every time, and Arizona’s only
public teaching hospital. If you were to visit our main hospital, two behavioral
health centers or thirteen neighborhood Family Health Centers, you would see
hundreds of people come and go. They may be elderly or young. Affluent or poor.
Patient or visitor. Simply put, these individuals are the very reason for
everything that we do, both within our walls and in the communities around us.
They are the reason our 3463 employees, five hundred physicians, two hundred and
forty-five volunteers, twelve Governing Council members and five District Board
members are united in a commitment to provide unparalleled quality and
compassionate patient service. As our community safety net, MIHS is there when you need us the most. We provide the states only nationally
verified adult and pediatric burn center, serving the entire southwest as the
nation’s second busiest burn center. Also, the only trauma center in Arizona
verified by the American College of Surgeons to treat adults and children
– keeping families together in their hour of need. And we have the Arizona
Children’s Center, a refugee women’s health clinic and the McDowell Healthcare Center – the largest provider of HIV primary care in
our state. MIHS also delivers comprehensive primary care throughout
our community. Our thirteen Family Health Centers and specialty outpatient center
treat over 400,000 Maricopa County adults and children every year. We’re
also a leader in behavioral health with 241 inpatient beds to serve those
challenged by severe mental illness, a first episode clinic to help teens and
young adults address their first psychotic break, and an assertive
community treatment team that provides community-based services to people with
serious mental health issues. Now you have most likely read or heard about the
national and local shortages and physicians nurses and other medical
professions. MIHS is one of the valleys oldest and largest physician training
institutions, training more than 400 physicians annually in 13 graduate
medical education programs. And each year, we partner with other teaching
institutions to train nearly 3,000 non-physician professionals, such as nurses and military medical personnel to ensure that the students of today are prepared
to be the health care professionals of tomorrow. This video serves as a mere
introduction to give you a snapshot of who we are; but, we invite you to learn
more about MIHS and the diversity of our services by visiting our website at
MIHS.org. To your good health from all of us at MIHS.
