About Us

Presbyterian Healthcare Services is a locally owned, not-for-profit healthcare system of eight hospitals, a statewide health plan and a growing multi-specialty medical group. Founded in New Mexico in 1908, it is the state¿s largest private employer with approximately 11,000 employees.


Presbyterian¿s story is really the story of the remarkable people who have chosen to work here. Starting with Reverend Cooper who began our journey in 1908, the hard work of thousands of physicians, employees, board members, and other volunteers brought Presbyterian from a tiny tuberculosis sanatorium to a statewide healthcare system, serving more than 700,000 New Mexicans.


We are part of New Mexico¿s history ¿ and committed to its future. That is why we will continue to work just as hard and care just as deeply to serve New Mexico for years to come.
