West Mesa Medical Center is the only hospital on Albuquerque
's West Side. The hospital provides 24-hour emergency care to 17,000 patients a year and offers numerous services, including lab, x-ray, cardiopulmonary and occupational therapy.
The hospital has recently undergone a $15 million expansion project to better serve the health care needs of West Side residents in their own neighborhood.
Once the project is complete, the West Mesa Medical Center will be a multi-specialty, acute-care hospital featuring more services and specialties, including 100-plus beds, six operating suites, an eight-bed Intensive Care Unit, and a 17-bed, 11,000-square-foot emergency room.
