Roswell and Chaves County residents enjoy the benefits of having not one, but two award-winning, full-service hospitals close to home and a diverse network of medical providers from primary to specialty care.

Lovelace Regional Hospital

This Roswell hospital, part of the 100-year-old Lovelace Health System, is an important provider of health care in the community. The 27-licensed-bed facility saw slightly more than 12,000 visits in the 24/7 emergency department, performed nearly 4,000 surgeries and helped deliver almost 700 of the region’s newest residents. It also generates 216 jobs.

“Lovelace Regional Hospital is committed to compassionate care in everything we do for our patients, from welcoming newborns into our community to providing advanced cardiac care and getting our patients back to health with physical therapy and our rehabilitation program,” says Christy Escandon, Lovelace Regional Hospital chief nursing officer.

Caring for Moms and Babies

Moms-to-be can count on a skilled obstetrical staff, including midwifery services, private rooms where they can labor, deliver and recover, and a nearby surgical suite for C-section births. Also, the hospital teaches a one-day Getting Ready for Baby class to educate on topics from relaxation to baby care. Plus, expectant mothers can join the Labor of Love program to make the pregnancy experience as stress-free as possible.

An experienced cardiology department treats cardiopulmonary needs with education, an interventional cardiology catheterization lab, treatment for heart rhythm disorders and more – all to help patients live a better, healthier life. Other options for health care in Roswell include an outpatient rehabilitation program, video visits, diagnostic imaging services and more.

Eastern New Mexico Medical Center

Eastern New Mexico Medical Center has served the community of Roswell and Chaves County with roots dating back to 1906, providing a large range of inpatient and outpatient care. Additionally, the Roswell hospital is a regional referral center for multiple counties across the southeastern part of the state.

Here, you will find a comprehensive emergency room with 23 beds, including three trauma rooms and an accredited Level III trauma center, primary stroke center and chest pain center.

A broad panel of inpatient acute care is available. These services include medical/surgical, intensive care, inpatient dialysis, adult behavioral health and a comprehensive family care services unit – labor/ delivery and pediatric.

The medical center offers a full spectrum of outpatient care including imaging services from mammography to MRIs, nuclear studies, laboratory services, EKGs, EEGs, pulmonary function testing and many more. The medical center works closely with their clinic affiliate, Eastern New Mexico Medical Group, which partners with over 20 primary care physicians, specialists and providers to meet the community’s outpatient health needs. These combined medical professionals see over 70,000 clinic visits annually.

“Our community is truly fortunate to have a committed team of physicians, clinicians and caregivers here in southeastern New Mexico who make a difference for so many patients each day,” says Warren Yehl, CEO for Eastern New Mexico Medical Center. “We help people get well and live healthier and return home to their loved ones.”

Helping train physicians, nurses and other health professionals in southeastern New Mexico, the facility is a teaching hospital for Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell students and Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine medical students.

Beyond clinical care, the hospital/health system is one of the major employers with close to 600 professionals. The medical center regularly invests resources to expand and enhance services available locally, as evidenced by the estimated $96 million community impact in 2021, including charity care, donations, capital investments and workforce impact.
