From Rural Hospital to Modern Day Innovator
Artesia General Hospital has been committed to delivering medical care to our community since the facility first opened its doors in 1939. Since then the hospital has grown into a 49-bed, non-profit facility serving Artesia and Southeastern New Mexico.
Patients come to Artesia General Hospital with a common need – to receive quality healthcare. We strive to be much more than a state-of-the-art hospital with a broad range of services – we strive to provide compassionate care. Our family atmosphere brings out the best in each person and empowers each of us to perform the best work of our lives.
We aspire to achieve the highest standards of quality and patient satisfaction. Our patient, physician and employee satisfaction rates are some of the most admired in the region and state, and our health care system is recognized as a leader in quality health care.
Our distinguished medical staff is why Artesia General Hospital draws patients from across Southeastern New Mexico. The vast majority of our physicians are board certified or board eligible in their medical specialties, and they have been trained at the nation’s finest medical schools and hospitals.
Safety, effectiveness, patient centeredness, timeliness, efficiency and equity – these tenants are the foundation of our approach to quality. We compare ourselves against state and national benchmarks in these key areas to ensure we deliver the highest quality and safest care possible.
Our work and mission has always been guided by the needs of our patients and their families. We partner with our community to build, improve and sustain health care delivery and increase the health and well-being of those who live and work in Artesia as well as the surrounding regions.
