Clinic Details:The mission of El Centro Family Health is to provide affordable, accessible, quality health care to the people of Northern New Mexico. Developing a healthy body, mind, and spirit is a lifelong journey. In Northern New Mexico, the quality of this journey is enriched and interwoven with the traditions, history and culture of the people. Distance, isolation, economics, and the lack of information are major obstacles to achieving that quality of living. We strive to improve the quality of life by bringing primary health care and basic health education to the people of Northern New Mexico. Through a system of clinics and cooperative programs, El Centro offers vital health services in a caring and supportive environment. We serve the people of this region and help to preserve the unique traditional qualities that define life in Northern New Mexico.

Details: At Presbyterian Medical Services, we believe that the best way to improve community health and well-being is for everyone to work together. To that end, we work collaboratively with community groups, school districts, local providers, hospitals and governments at every level. Together, we develop programs and services that meet the needs of the people living within these communities. And we only expand into communities that invite our involvement. Our diverse services include primary care, dental, behavioral health, childhood education and senior programs. To make the greatest impact possible, we concentrate our resources on meeting the needs of underserved areas of New Mexico.
Details: Las Clinicas del Norte (LCDN) is a federally designated Frontier Community Health Center, and provides services to the approximately 14,720 residents of its service area, covering 2,500 square miles in parts of Rio Arriba and Taos Counties, both of which have been designated Medically Underserved Areas (MUAs). The LCDN service area is a frontier region, with low population density (4.2 persons/square mile), with widely scattered villages and small towns. Las Clinicas del Norte is the only provider of primary care, oral health care, and behavioral health services in its service area. The area is extremely rural and mountainous, with winters that sometimes make travel hazardous. Our vision is to provide culturally competent care to the underserved and medically indigent patients in a remote part of northern New Mexico. LCDN operates three clinic sites, in Ojo Caliente, Abiquiu, and Ojo Caliente, all strategically located to provide maximum access to the area’s rural residents. LCDN also operates school-based health centers in Abiquiu, 2 in the Mesa Vista School District at El Rito and near Ojo Caliente, and in Pojoaque, NM, a rural community 20 miles north of Santa Fe, adjacent to Pojoaque Pueblo.
