There are now two hospitals: St. Mary's in Nogales and Green Valley Hospital in Green Valley. Tubac Fire Department has IEMT's 24/7 and they are very good. I have been to both ED rooms and they both give good service, but I found Green Valley's ED to have newer equipment. There is also an urgent care off the left hand side of Duval Mine Road and they give good care also.
