Komatke Health Center, financed by the Gila River Health Care Corporation, is a tribal initiative to provide localized, regional health care outside the greater Phoenix area. The comprehensive health care facility gives medicine a personal face with greeters and culturally appropriate surroundings.

As a tribal project there was great interest in having the Komatke Health Center reflect the tribes cultural aesthetics and values. The flooring patterns in the Center are from traditional historic basketry designs. The colors and textures of the Centers finishes also reflect the regional styles of the tribe.
