COVID Update: NM Governor Announces Public Health Emergency

Hello everyone,

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham has announced a public health emergency in New Mexico, as a response to addressing concerns with COVID-19. Read the release from the governor’s office here.

I’d like to take this opportunity to reassure our community that CHRISTUS St. Vincent remains vigilant in our care of all patients, including those with flu, respiratory, or shortness of breath symptoms and other health concerns.  As promised, we will continue to provide you timely updates as to our work….both at the main hospital, in our clinics, and in the community.  

I continue to be appreciative of our Associates’ everyday efforts to not only care for our community but each other. And I have a great deal of confidence in our team’s timely and thoughtful response efforts. Their expertise and compassion is making all the difference in reducing anxiety and in demonstrating our commitment to providing the best care to our community in all types of situations.  

More to come. 

With gratitude,
Lillian Montoya
President & CEO
