The office of Dr. Ghebru Woldemichael announced his retirement. Woldemichael has provided urology care to the Yuma community for nearly 20 years. “He has deeply enjoyed providing care for this community and will greatly miss his patients,” office manager Pennie Sosinski said. “Thank you for your patronage.” The Regional Center for Border Health and its subsidiary, the San Luis Walk-in Clinic, which own and operate the San Luis Medical Mall, have been notified that the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations granted accreditation and will also be recommending the organization for Medicare certification effective immediately. JCAHO is a not-for-profit organization that accredits over 22,000 healthcare organizations nationwide. The clinic, which serves Yuma, La Paz and Mohave counties, opened the doors of the San Luis Medical Mall in May 2021. Amanda Aguirre, president and CEO, called this new accomplishment a huge milestone in access to healthcare in Yuma County. “We completed this 64,000-square-foot facility in the middle of the pandemic. The community deserves this, and we will continue expanding to meet the needs of the underserved”. The Surgery Center, located inside the San Luis Medical Mall, will be open to any patients. The Medical Mall, which aims to be a one-stop-shop for all primary care and behavioral health needs, also houses a family medicine clinic and wellness center, women’s health center, cancer infusion center, specialty and diagnostic center and an urgent care along with the Sonoran Desert Café and deli and a memorial garden dedicated to cancer survivors.
