Getting to know Flagstaff

Northern Arizona Healthcare’s Flagstaff Medical Center is located just north of downtown. At nearly 7,000 feet in elevation, this charming mountain town boasts four seasons and lots of sunshine. The center of the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest, it’s a recreational hub with many areas for camping, hiking, biking, skiing, climbing, golfing, fishing and other outdoor adventures.

Flagstaff, the county seat of Coconino County, is about a 45-minute drive from the red rocks of Sedona; a one and a half-hour drive from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon; a two-hour drive from Phoenix and Lake Powell; and a four-hour drive from Las Vegas and Tucson. It’s also a short distance away from Native American ruins at Wupatki and Sunset Crater National Monuments.


A city of nearly 70,000 people, Flagstaff is rich with cultural activities including theater, museums, art galleries, restaurants, bars, a symphony and diverse music venues. These offerings are infused with the area’s Native American and Southwestern heritage. Healthcare is one of the area’s primary industries, along with tourism, government and education.

Flagstaff also hosts a sizable airport, shopping centers, an indoor mall, a ski resort, an observatory and a historic downtown district.
