IHS restores emergency care at Navajo hospital

The Indian Health Service has restored emergency services at a hospital on the Navajo Nation.

The Crownpoint Health Care Facility in Crownpoint, New Mexico, stopped offering emergency services during nights and weekends because there weren't enough lab workers.

Services were restored after the hospital hired more staff, Navajo Area Indian Health Service director John Hubbard said. Hubbard said he is still waiting to hear on his proposal to hire a CEO for the facility.
