Project Spotlight: Pueblo Pintado Health Center

Mill Creek is providing initial outfitting and transition planning services for the new construction of the 121,456 square foot Pueblo Pintado Health Center. The new health center is a modern, technologically advanced facility with enough space and staff to provide an expanded level of health care services specifically designed to meet the healthcare needs of the American Indian and Alaska Natives in the Crownpoint Service Unit.

In addition to the Indian Health Service programs, several tribally operated health programs are incorporated into the new facility. This will improve access to medical care, as well as improve the collaboration and partnership between the Navajo Nation and the Indian Health Service. The new facility provides an expanded outpatient department, community health department, and a full array of ancillary and support services. The new health center will serve approximately projected 6,000 American Indian and Alaska Natives. It will be located on an 86-acre site on tribal trust land in Pueblo Pintado.

Mill Creek provided equipment selection, specification, transition planning, and management services. We worked with the A/E team and owner representatives to develop an approved equipment list that can be used by the A/E as a basis of design, as well as specifications and equipment schedules. We coordinated with the construction contractor to ensure the final purchased and installed equipment had all the required utilities and space to function correctly.
