ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Presbyterian Healthcare Services has purchased 6.7 acres of land on the corner of St. Michael’s Drive and Botulph Road in Santa Fe.
Currently, the plan for the newly purchased land is to build a 15,000 to 20,000-square-foot clinic that will mainly provide primary care and open in early 2015. This is a more than $7.5 million investment in healthcare for Santa Fe residents.
Presbyterian is building on the 20-year history that its health plan has had in the community with more than 32,000 Santa Fe residents currently enrolled in a Presbyterian insurance plan.
“Presbyterian is excited to join the outstanding medical community in Santa Fe,” said Lauren Cates, senior vice president Market Development and Operational Planning for Presbyterian. “We spent a great deal of time listening to the community and our Santa Fe members healthcare needs and are pleased to bring more providers and more primary care services to the Santa Fe community.”
Presbyterian has been serving Northern New Mexico for more than six decades. Recently, Presbyterian Española Hospital opened its new 34-bed patient tower in December 2012.
