ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Presbyterian Healthcare Services is making headway on a pair of surgery centers that the healthcare provider expects to reduce wait times for in-patient and out-patient surgeries alike.
Presbyterian is moving an existing surgery center operated by New Mexico Orthopaedics to its Kaseman Hospital campus, at 8300 Constitution Ave. NE. The new center will occupy a larger space where doctors can treat patients suffering from a wide variety of orthopedic and podiatry ailments. Meanwhile, the space being vacated will be converted to a more general surgery center focused on all types of outpatient care.
Clay Holderman, chief operating officer and executive vice president for Presbyterian, said the new facilities will be among the first of their kind in New Mexico, and should result in fewer patients using hospitals for outpatient surgery.
