Volunteerism and philanthropy are traditions at Presbyterian and hallmark qualities of our employees—and of the community members who help to govern and guide our organization by donating their time to provide both strategic leadership and steady stewardship.
Never before have our leadership teams and community board members played such an important role strengthening our integrated system of hospitals, healthcare providers and a health plan. In particular, the volunteers who serve on our boards—remarkable individuals with unique talents and perspectives from communities across the state--embody the spirit of Presbyterian expressed by one of our founders, Marion K. Van (“Mrs. Van”) Devanter: “If we can help, we should.” Learn more about Presbyterian Leadership
Hundreds of Registered Volunteers
In January 2006, Presbyterian inaugurated the Employee Volunteer Program to recognize the efforts of individual employees in the communities we serve. More than 300 employees registered in the first three months, and more than 120 organizations and events in fourteen New Mexico communities have been identified as volunteer opportunities for our employees.
Leadership for Local and National Organizations
More than 95 percent of Presbyterian's 43 senior leaders serve as volunteer board members or active members of 90 local and national organizations. Through these memberships Presbyterian employees take their passion and understanding for service excellence to help improve organizations that ultimately benefit New Mexico communities.
Charity Health Care
Presbyterian provides medically necessary health care to patients who seek health care from any Presbyterian facility or service, regardless of the patients' ability to pay for these services.
