About our Practice

Women's Medical Associates was founded in 2000 by an MD, a CNP and a CNM. These three women desired to provide quality OB and GYN care to Las Cruces and its surrounding communities. Some providers have come and gone over the years and in 2012, Women's Medical Associates became a part of the Las Cruces Physician Practices owned by Lifepoint Hospitals. We are associated exclusively with Memorial Medical Center and all our surgeries and deliveries are performed at this excellent hospital. We currently have three physicians, three midwives and one nurse practitioner. We also have on staff a lactation consultant who is available to assist any of our patients in need of education and assistance with breastfeeding.  In addition we have an ultra-sonographer on site to provide this diagnostic testing quickly and conveniently for our patients. We look forward to providing our expertise to help meet your health care needs.
