Hospital fuses Navajo tradition, modern medicine
USA Today, August 18, 2008
At Banner Page Hospital in northern Arizona, traditional Navajo healing is merging with modern medicine. The hospital's Native American Cultural Committee is working toward an inclusive medical community by tackling the cultural sensitivities of the Navajo people, many of whom are wary of modern medicine. The 25-bed, Page, AZ-based facility serves a population of about 20,000 drawn from a 50-mile radius. About 50% of patients come from the nearby Navajo reservation.
