There are currently more than 325 freestanding medical clinics that are being operated by major hospitals nationally.
Add to that number two new 12,500-square foot clinics that will soon be a part of Presbyterian Healthcare Services’ expanding facility footprint in New Mexico.
The clinics, designed by the Albuquerque-based architectural firm of Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, will be specifically geared for both emergency medical as well as urgent care services.
Plans call for one of the clinics to go up at Coors Boulevard at Learning Road NW on the west side of Albuquerque, while the other facility will be built at San Pedro Drive and Paseo Del Norte on the northeast side of the city.
An exact construction schedule for the two projects has not yet been announced, but work is expected to begin most likely this summer, with an early 2019 completion date.
The private, not-for-profit Presbyterian Healthcare Services, with eight hospitals in New Mexico, is currently in the process of building a 342,000 square foot hospital in Santa Fe at a cost of $145 million.
