July 1 Christus St. Vincent Hospital Feels Fx Of Presbyterian's Rx For Santa Fe

Jul 1, 2016


Renovation is underway at Christus St. Vincent

In a couple of years, people living on the south side of Santa Fe and beyond will have a new hospital and emergency room built by the nonprofit Presbyterian Healthcare Services.  At the same time, the city’s grand-daddy of hospitals, Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, will welcome patients to a renovated facility with all private rooms.  As Deborah Martinez reports, the increased competition won’t come without growing pains that will be felt by Christus, its workeforce, and by patients in Northern New Mexico’s rural areas.
