Dr. David Gonzales, who will run the facility, said Presbyterian Healthcare Service’s new 17,000-clinic in Sandoval County will be a patient-centered medical home with four providers who will see more than 100 patients a day.

Presbyterian Healthcare Services unveiled its new, 17,000-square-foot, $5 million primary care clinic in Sandoval County Tuesday in preparation for opening the facility next month.

The clinic at 3777 NM Highway 528 will operate as a patient-centered medical home and will provide health care to an underserved area, Dr. David Gonzales, who will run the facility, told Albuquerque Business First.

“This area, and in general, Sandoval County, has a growing population and not a lot of health care services,” Gonzales said. “We are adjacent to the town of Bernalillo and a lot of underserved needs, and hopefully we will help mitigate the need for services with the addition of our primary care clinic.”

The clinic will have 22 exam rooms and will eventually have three doctors, a nurse practitioner and the ability to see more than 100 patients a day.

The clinic will have an onsite TriCore Reference Laboratories facility, and will add radiology services, a pharmacist clinician and a behavioral health specialist, Gonzales said.

The clinic will open Oct. 6.

“Presbyterian is aware of the need for health care in the community and we want to be responsive to meeting those needs,” Gonzales added.
