Ganado, Ariz—As Sage Memorial Hospital begins its second century of service to people here in the heart of the Navajo Nation, this unique facility located on a compound of 110 acres of high desert in northeastern Arizona faces problems unimagined by the Presbyterian missionaries who founded it in 1901. At the same time, a cadre of dedicated health care professionals, augmented by a frequently changing cast of visiting colleagues, offers the 18 000 Navajo people in its service area—1500 sq miles of the 25 000-sq mile reservation, the largest in the United States—state-of-the-art attention to their well-being.
