ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The University of New Mexico’s Sandoval Regional Medical Center is relocating three clinics next week to the hospital’s newly renovated first floor.
The clinics are a Sleep Disorders Center, a medical specialties clinic, and a cardiology clinic.
“We know the medical services moving into the space are needed by the communities we serve,” said Jamie Silva-Steele, the center’s CEO, in a statement. “Being on the first floor of the hospital and close to parking makes the space ideal for patients to obtain the care they need.”
The Sleep Disorders Center was been located on the hospital’s fifth floor. Silva-Steele said in the statement that moving the center to the first floor will allow the space on the fifth floor to be used for medical inpatient beds. The center has four beds.
The medical specialties unit includes clinics specializing in endocrinology, infusion, nephrology, outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy and rheumatology. It had been located on the second floor of the hospital.
The cardiology clinic was located on McMahon Boulevard NW in Albuquerque.
The UNM Sandoval Regional Medical center is a community hospital based in Rio Rancho. It has a total of 60 beds and opened in 2012.
