When you have all that in your mind, get ready to open your eyes to all the possibilities of a life
in Prescott, Arizona. Because when you build your career at Yavapai Regional Medical Center,
that’s what you have to look forward to. The moment you arrive here, you’ll know right away
that this is a place where you and your family can call home.
Where is Prescott? We’re just 90 miles northwest of Phoenix. But with our mile-high altitude,
small town attitude and over one million acres of national forest, it often feels like we’re a
million miles away.
We boast the largest stand of Ponderosa pine trees in the world, not to mention majestic
mountains and pristine blue lakes. With this as a backdrop, you’ll find recreational opportunities
that are as limitless as your imagination. Hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing and horseback
riding are all at your doorstep. A myriad of public and private championship golf courses are
also close at hand. And if that weren’t enough, we're ideally located near the red rocks of
Sedona, snow skiing in Flagstaff, boating on Lake Powell or the world-renowned spectacle that
is the Grand Canyon.
Prescott is a place rich in history and tradition. In fact, Prescott was the first territorial capital of
Arizona, before it even became a state. In many ways, coming to Prescott is like taking a step
back in time. We invite you to immerse yourself in our charming Courthouse Square, galleries,
museums, tree-lined neighborhoods featuring turn-of-the-century Victorian homes, and historic,
famous Whiskey Row.
This is also an area that is focused on education and home to top-quality, high achieving K-12
schools, as well as Yavapai College, Prescott College and Embry Riddle Aeronautical
University, the top aeronautical university in the nation.
But though we try, words just don’t do justice to the feeling you’ll get when you call Prescott
home. We welcome you to come and visit us, and rest assured, you will feel welcome.
