Albuquerque’s healthcare providers deliver everything from emergency care to advanced specialty services to the community. With nearly 1,700 hospital beds, Albuquerque is the center of healthcare excellence in New Mexico.
The University of New Mexico (UNM) is a nationally recognized Class I research institution committed to innovation in the medical field. The newly constructed $90 million, 206,000-square-foot University of New Mexico Cancer Center offers world-class treatment and clinical research. The Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute leads the charge in biomedical research, along with prevention and treatment of a wide range of respiratory issues.
The Albuquerque metro area’s population is growing and healthcare providers are investing now for the future. Two new hospitals are under construction in Rio Rancho: the University of New Mexico is building its 200,000 square foot, $159 million Sandoval Regional Medical Center teaching hospital and Presbyterian Healthcare Services will open its $165 million, 66-bed hospital in 2011.
The City of Albuquerque is home to an active senior community, which provides activities, continued learning opportunities, senior centers and health management support for the area’s seniors and baby boomers.
There are also many exceptional assisted living care centers conveniently located throughout the metro area, as well as home healthcare treatment and senior care organizations.
