November 20, 2015 (FT. MOHAVE, AZ) – In November, Valley View Medical Center proudly celebrated its 10-Year Anniversary of providing quality healthcare services to Tri-State Area residents.

A 12-bed critical care unit provides a wide range of life supporting therapies for critically ill patients. The Women’s Center offers spacious labor and delivery suites that are more like hotel rooms than hospital rooms, and each features a fold-down bed so that a family member can comfortably spend the night. A variety of inpatient and outpatient surgical services are also available, and outpatient services such as all-digital diagnostic imaging, lab, physical, occupational and speech rehabilitation therapies, home health services, wound care and hyperbaric therapy.
