Los Alamos Medical Center's Community Impact

April 18, 2018

OUR COMMUNITY IMPACT


Los Alamos Medical Center’s mission is Making
Communities Healthier®. By creating places where people choose to come for healthcare,
physicians want to practice and employees want to work, we are creating a legacy of care for our
neighbors today and for generations to come. Here are just a few ways we made Northern New
Mexico healthier in 2017.
Delivering high quality patient care and supporting our physicians
The most important contribution we make to our community is providing high quality care
close to home. Quality and service are at the center of how we care for our patients, and we
continually invest in our facility to ensure we can meet the healthcare needs of our community.
In 2017, we made $740,380 in capital improvements, including new carescape monitors
and stretchers for our ER, and new ventilators for respiratory therapy.
Inviting the best physicians into our community and supporting them also is a key driver of
our efforts to ensure access to high quality care and service. During the past year, LAMC added
a new physician in obstetrics and gynecology to our Women’s Health Clinic.
Creating excellent workplaces for our employees
We strive to create an environment where talent is recognized, job satisfaction is valued and our
260 employees can effectively use their skills in providing high quality care and service; and we
managed and distributed an annual payroll of $19,609,747.
Taking a leadership role in the community
We are proud to be a leader in our region. Supporting local organizations and delivering
healthcare to all of our neighbors, regardless of their ability to pay, are foundational to our
commitment to the overall well-being of our community. In addition to numerous sponsorships
and charitable gifts, we delivered more than $516,000 in charity care to those in need.
Being fiscally responsible
Our commitment to ensuring fiscal responsibility extends both to our hospital and to the
community. In 2017, we paid a total of $2,251,090 in taxes.
Thank you for your continued support as we continue to make our community
healthier in 2018 and beyond.
At Los Alamos Medical Center, our
goal is to deliver the highest quality
healthcare in Northern New Mexico
as we seek to make our community
healthier.
