FARMINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) – Farmington now has a clinic for people who don’t have a regular doctor. The San Juan Regional Medical Center says a family physician and two nurse practitioners will treat patients released from the hospital as well as ER and urgent care patients. The hospital says 30% to 40% of its patients don’t have a primary care provider and they’ve seen a greater need for this kind of facility during the pandemic.

“Our experience with the local impact of the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted a disproportionate impact on local Native American populations, along with other at-risk populations. As a community owned and operated hospital, San Juan Regional Medical Center is committed to being a catalyst in addressing health disparities and being part of solutions to make positive impacts on social determinants of health,” said Jeff Bourgeois in a news release Monday, President and CEO of San Juan Regional Medical Center.
