The hospital operates New Mexico's only Level I Trauma Center, treating nearly 90,000 emergency patients and more than 450,000 outpatients annually. The Barbara & Bill Richardson Pavilion, which opened in the spring of 2007, added nearly 500,000 square feet of emergency and clinical space uniquely configured for medical efficiency and patient safety, and fitted with cutting-edge imaging, laboratory and surgical technology.
UNM Hospital serves as the primary teaching hospital for the UNM School of Medicine and participates in hundreds of advanced clinical trials annually. It also is the home of the highly regarded UNM Children's Hospital and the National Cancer Institute-designated UNM Cancer Center. The UNM Hospital system includes Carrie Tingley Hospital, UNM Children's Psychiatric Center and UNM Psychiatric Center; and shares missions and resources with UNM's College of Nursing and College of Pharmacy as well as the New Mexico Poison Center.
In addition to the main hospital, the UNM system operates 43 off-site clinics throughout the state, including the UNM Cancer Center South in Las Cruces, NM. The hospital further expands into New Mexico's rural communities through a nationally recognized Telemedicine/Telehealth network, linking patients and physicians throughout the state to the most up-to-date research and medical information available.
The UNM Hospital system serves all New Mexicans' needs for routine medical procedures, chronic disease management and catastrophic health events. From central New Mexico to the four corners of the state, UNM Hospitals and all of its clinical components strive to identify and solve the most important questions of human health in our communities through education, scholarship and service.
