October 27, 2015

RIO RANCHO, N.M. – On November 2, 2015, the main entrance to the Emergency Department at Presbyterian Rust Medical Center will reopen.

Patients have currently been accessing the Emergency Department through the main entrance of the hospital due to construction of the second patient tower. With the reopening of the main entrance, patients will again be able to access the Emergency Department on the west side of the hospital.

The first three floors of the new patient tower are scheduled to open in early December 2015, along with the Ted and Margaret Jorgensen Cancer Center, an outpatient center for medical oncology, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
