In Saturday's blog I talked about the VA hospital in Albuquerque. It is an excellent modern facility with a really professional staff. I am happy to report that Valencia County is also well served by the health care clinics operated by Presbyterian Hospital in both Los Lunas and

Belen. The picture above is the Los Lunas clinic. These clinics can take care of many health problems, and when they can't adequately care for a patient here, the patient can be treated at the main facility in Albuquerque (emergency medical transportation can be done by a local ambulance company which operates EMT-staffed ambulances. Medical care in Albuquerque can also be taken care of at Lovelace Hospital, Presbyterian Hospital, University of New Mexico Medical Center, and many specialized private clinics and physicians. Additionally, a medical air transport service is available at the Albuquerque Sunport for patients needing cross-country transportation.
