About Our Clinic

The original Santo Domingo Health Station was located in the pueblo village proper as a 1500 sq. ft. facility. Limited ambulatory care services were provided to about 15 patients in the morning and afternoon. The current primary structure of the Santo Domingo Health Center was built and completed by SDP in 2006, with expansions for added clinical and administration space completed in 2016 and 2020.

  

In November 2011, the Kewa Pueblo Health Corporation was awarded a P.L. 93-638, Title I Indian Self Determination Contract from the Indian Health Service to provide medical, dental, behavioral health, optometry, patient benefits, PRC, podiatry, pediatric care, audiology, and other specialty care services to the community. 

KPHC is governed by a seven (7) member Health Board who are delegated authority through charter by the Tribal Council of the Santo Domingo Pueblo. The KPHC Health Board is responsible for the development of this strategic plan and for the hiring of a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to oversee day-to-day operations in the implementation of this Strategic Plan.
