Foundation Focus

Donors continue to make a difference in Presbyterian’s evolution. The Foundation’s latest projects showcase how your support impacts Presbyterian’s commitment to expand its ability to care for the community. Among other things, gifts fund the transformation of Presbyterian Hospital and the creation of new programs and services including Pace Academy, Presbyterian Breast Care at Rust Medical Center, a new neurosciences program and the Presbyterian Robert Wertheim Hospice House.

Your support enables us to bring these projects to completion and sustain them for years to come, fulfilling our commitment to excellence, our commitment to the future, and our commitment to our community.

Presbyterian Breast Care

Opening on the second floor of the new Physician Office Building at Presbyterian Rust Medical Center, Presbyterian Breast Care is designed to optimize the patient experience by bringing the multidisciplinary care team together in one convenient location where patients can access breast care screening, diagnostics, surgical and supportive care.



Presbyterian Hospital Transformation and Neurological Care

The Presbyterian Hospital revitalization will improve patient experience, expand medical services and help recruit more clinicians. A key part of the transformation is an expanded neurology department and the addition of a new neuro intensive care unit.



Presbyterian Robert Wertheim Hospice House

Opening in spring 2022 in northeast Albuquerque, this landmark of compassion and care will be the first of its kind in central New Mexico, fulfilling an unmet need for specialized hospice care in our community.

It’s hospice, complete with doctors, nurses and other essential care providers. But most importantly, it’s home. A place where family can be together to share meals and celebrate the life and memories of their loved one.



Presbyterian Pace Academy

In partnership with Presbyterian Children’s Care, the Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation has created a new hospital-based teacher program, the Pace Academy, focused on educational support for pediatric cancer patients. The program and classroom are made possible through contributions to the Kathie Winograd Educational Excellence Fund which parallels Dr. Winograd’s tireless work to make education more accessible.

Through the program, young patients who miss considerable time in school can continue to learn, interact with teachers and receive the support they need to stay on track at their grade level.
