Thank You For Your Support in the Best of the Best

Additionally, readers voted Women's Medical Associates as the Best OB/GYN clinic and Memorial Family HealthCare - North Main as the Best General Practice Doctor's Office.

While we do not strive for excellence in healthcare to earn awards, they do serve as an affirmation that we are achieving our mission of Making Communities Healthier. We work hard to provide high quality care that’s continuously recognized for excellence. It’s why so many in our community trust us for their care. And it’s why we are the center of healthcare for Southern New Mexico.

Thank you for your continued support.

Highlighting Our Many Positive Community Impacts

Every year, we publish a community benefit report that highlights the various ways we support the health and well-being of our region. As a leader in this community, our mission of Making Communities Healthier extends both inside and outside our hospital walls.

Our mission has never been more crucial than in recent years, as we have all steadily worked to protect the health of our patients, each other and our community during challenging times. Being part of LifePoint Health, a diversified healthcare delivery network, allows us to uphold our legacy of care and community leadership, and continue to cultivate an environment where people choose to come for healthcare, providers want to practice and employees – like you – want to work.

Our annual community benefit report outlines some of the essential ways we’re working to create a workplace wherein your expertise and job satisfaction are valued and where you can leverage your knowledge, skills and experience to care for others. For example, in 2021, we distributed more than $115 million in salaries, wages and benefits to our approximately 1,400 team members. We also invested more than $6.3 million in technology and facility improvements to ensure our staff have the tools, technology and resources they need to continue providing quality patient outcomes. 

Moreover, we invested more than $40,000 in professional development and tuition reimbursement so all our employees can have the opportunity to learn, grow and improve the care they provide our patients.

In an effort to boost our region’s economic well-being, we aim to be a fiscally responsible organization and paid more than $22 million in taxes in 2021, while making contributions to a variety of local organizations.

These are just a few examples of the many ways we’re Making Communities Healthier every year.

I encourage you to view this powerful video testimonial that represents the latest entry in our Memorial Difference campaign. It speaks volumes to how we help people rediscover their capacity for life.
Veronica discovered the Memorial Difference after seeking a remedy for excruciating hip pain. Hardly able to walk or stand without a cane, anterior hip replacement surgery at Memorial performed by Dr. Robert Schwartz transformed her life.
As Veronica puts it, “Two years ago, I was in physical hell. And now I’m in physical heaven.”
