The University of New Mexico Children’s Hospital is dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of the children and families of New Mexico. We are New Mexico’s only comprehensive children’s hospital. The services we provide range from preterm and newborn care, general well care, illness, pediatric surgery, trauma, emergency care, care for children with chronic illnesses and developmental disabilities. We offer patient and family centered care with the most advanced technologies for both diagnoses and treatment.
As part of an academic medical center, we are involved in advancing the frontiers of science through research critical to the future of health care and children’s lives in New Mexico. Through a network of hospitals, clinics, and community based services that are integrally linked to the education and research mission of UNM, our providers apply advanced medical care and an abiding concern for the well-being of children to improve and restore health for New Mexico's youngest residents.
The mission of UNM Children's Hospital and Health Services is to provide the children of New Mexico with comprehensive, family centered health care that is unequaled in the state and region.
We are driven by a vision of society in which all children in New Mexico have access to a full continuum of family centered pediatric healthcare services which allow each child to achieve optimum health. We seek to further enrich the quality of life of New Mexico's culturally and ethnically diverse populations as we create, evaluate, apply and disseminate knowledge to improve the health status of infants, children, and young adults throughout New Mexico and the region.
