Play Safe

What started as an internal campaign to encourage patrons to Play Safe at the newly smoke free Bucky’s & Yavapai Casinos has hit the pavement as a community wide initiative. With
members of our amazing community doing the right thing and playing safe while out enjoying free time they are doing their part to keep all of us safe. Those of you taking precautions at the Courthouse Square or Entertainment District and other area restaurants,
bars and social settings are thanked for doing their part and aren’t going unnoticed. Let’s all Play Safe so we can put COVID-19 behind us!
Yavapai Safe Program for Businesses

Businesses may self-certify by viewing the guidelines on the YCHS webpage ( https://www.yavapai.us/chs/Home/COVID-19 ) , then by requesting a decal through either the Prescott Valley, Prescott or Cottonwood Chambers of Commerce. Businesses who elect to participate in the #YavapaiSafe program should post the sticker/decal in a prominent, visible location.

Sponsor News

Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) and Dignity Health are currently involved in discussions to evaluate a potential collaboration between the two organizations. YRMC, with acute care hospitals in Prescott and Prescott Valley, primary and specialty care clinics, and extensive outpatient services, has been serving western Yavapai County since 1943. 

“This opportunity has tremendous potential to help YRMC advance healthcare in our region,” adds Amos. “Being part of a system that includes a Level-One Trauma Center, Barrow Neurological Institute, Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center, and the Cancer Center at St. Joseph’s would add great value to the high-quality healthcare we already provide to those in our region.”

Discussions are ongoing between both organizations and a decision regarding collaboration is expected this summer.
