Experience Counts! Recipient of the "Best Hospital" Reader's Choice Award 2003 - 2013, 2015 and 2017! 

Located in the Mesilla Valley of southern New Mexico - between the stunning Organ Mountains and the rambling Rio Grande - Memorial Medical Center serves the more than 300,000 residents of Las Cruces, Doña Ana County, and the surrounding region. We offer comprehensive care to our patients, including the latest in diagnostic, therapeutic, and rehabilitative services, both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.

Nothing is more important to us than patient safety and delivering the highest quality care.

We are also one of twelve hospitals in New Mexico that have joined the New Mexico Medical Review Association (NMMRA) in a focused effort to enhance methodology and ensure the best treatment for each and every patient each and every time.

Memorial Loses A Good Friend: Arthur Edward "Eddie" Binder, Chairman, Board Of Trustees

It is with a heavy heart that we acknowledge the passing of our Board of Trustees Chairman, Eddie Binder. Eddie passed away unexpectedly April 26th. He was a member of the Memorial Medical Center family since being appointed to our Board in June, 2016. Eddie had a wonderful history of serving Las Cruces and the surrounding region. He was a tremendous advocate for Memorial Medical Center. He genuinely enjoyed helping to achieve high levels of quality care for the people in southern New Mexico. He will be remembered for his genuine warmth and sincerity in everything that he did. Eddie will be greatly missed by those who had the privilege of working with him or just the opportunity to know him. Our prayers are with Eddie's family, and we wish them the strength to deal with this great loss. We will miss him.
