Charitable Care & Financial Assistance

Each year, UNM Health System provides tens of millions of dollars in uncompensated medical care to patients throughout New Mexico. This care is supported with the proceeds of an annual mill levy. We also offer financial assistance, including a self-pay discount program and care programs to help patients access needed services.

UNM Hospital operates under a lease with Bernalillo County and Indian Health Services. We work to provide affordable and accessible care to Bernalillo County residents. Our services cover dire needs in the community, such as cancer treatment, pediatric services, surgery and maternity care.

UNM Sandoval Regional Medical Center is a major health care provider for Sandoval County, with a particular focus on serving Native American patients.

Creating Jobs in New Mexico

As a community partner, we strive to make Albuquerque and New Mexico a better place to live and work. UNM Health System employs nearly 7,000 New Mexicans who support the state economy with millions of dollars each year.
