Memorial was very proud to be a supporting sponsor for Las Cruces Public Schools’ (LCPS) first annual Teacher and Support Person of the Year Awards Luncheon on February 25th. When Dr. Ewing told us about this initiative, to recognize excellence at each of 41 LCPS campuses, we viewed this partnership as an opportunity to stand for Quality in Education just as Memorial stands for Quality in Health Care…the perfect partnership.

It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that we bid a final farewell to our friend and colleague, former Chief Financial Officer, Ray Grenier. Ray was diagnosed with brain cancer last fall. He fought a valiant battle and was with his loving wife, Julie, when he passed away on Friday, February 22, 2019. Ray was known by many of the 1,300 employees at Memorial and was loved by all. He was instrumental in helping Memorial grow into the quality, successful health system that it has become over the last 5 years.

We received word last week from The Joint Commission (TJC) that our Surgical Weight Loss Program has officially earned certification as a “Disease Specific Program”.

Did you know that you can be seen right away at most of Memorial’s Family Care and Internal Medicine practices, even if you’re a new patient?

Heart Month - February 2019

February 1, 2019

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, hearts seem to be everywhere you look this time of year. That’s why it is especially fitting that February is American Heart Month, a time to raise awareness of heart disease and how we can help prevent it. It’s also the perfect opportunity to remind ourselves to take good care of our hearts year-round.

This weekend I was in Santa Fe along with our Chief Operating Officer, Steve Ruwoldt, and our Chief Nursing Officer, Caryn Iverson, to represent the interests of Southern New Mexico to the new legislators and Governor. Memorial is proud to be one of the major sponsors of the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce annual event, Las Cruces Days in Santa Fe. We feel that it is very important for those who govern our state to be aware of issues that affect our economy and, most certainly, access to health care in our region.
