In October 1999, the Heart Hospital of New Mexico opened its doors to patients and became the state's first hospital dedicated to the prevention and treatment of heart disease. Located at 504 Elm St., the two story Heart Hospital offers a comprehensive range of heart care services.
The Heart Hospital of New Mexico is dedicated to one goal: the very best in heart care for New Mexico and the region. The heart hospital resulted from the shared vision of the New Mexico Heart Institute (NMHI) and Southwest Cardiology Associates (SWCA), the same talented cardiovascular physician groups that pioneered New Mexico's leading heart programs. This uniquely designed hospital provides comprehensive, cost-effective, physician-directed and patient-centered care. The physician groups collaborated with MedCath, a North Carolina-based firm that manages cardiac hospitals nationwide, and a local not-for-profit healthcare system that has since divested its interests.
