High Touch Health Care
Los Alamos Medical Center is a 47-bed acute-care facility, the major health care institution and the only hospital in the community. Its medical staff of 55 active, and another 40 consulting physicians, bring to the community a level of sophisticated medical technology and technique not common to “small community hospitals.” Best known for its high-touch care, those it has served in Northern New Mexico for nearly 40 years consider the hospital a regional medical center. A majority of the active physicians have their main offices on the medical center campus. Our parent corporation is LifePoint Hospitals, Inc., of Brentwood, TN.
Complete Service Spectrum
The hospital provides complete medical, surgical, obstetrical, pediatric, emergency, and diagnostic services. LAMC’s Clinical Laboratory and Radiology Departments offer a broad spectrum of care facilitated by state-of-the-art equipment. LifePoint’s Northern New Mexico Clinic Services division includes employed providers (physicians and nurse practitioners): hospitalist, family practice, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, and oncology specialists. LAMC’s Care Coordination Department insures a seamless transition throughout the area health care delivery system via discharge planning and community care coordination partnering with other providers.
In all, LAMC employs approximately 300 Northern New Mexicans in its five Los Alamos and Espanola locations. As a major employer, as well as healthcare provider, LAMC takes pride in its contributions to the communities of our region.
