San Juan Regional Medical Center is a community owned and operated hospital located in the beautiful San Juan River Valley in northwest New Mexico. A non-profit hospital serving the Four Corners area of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah, we have a rich heritage dating back to before New Mexico was a state. In 1910, two physicians, Dr. G.W. Sammons and Dr. A.M. Smith, saw a community need for quality healthcare close to home. They started an eight-bed hospital so patients would not have to travel the treacherous 50 miles to Durango, Colorado. Today, the focus on serving the community with quality healthcare services remains, although our hospital has grown into a 198 bed, level III trauma center including state-of-the-art operating suites and 165 private patient rooms with fresh air balconies. As a 340B hospital, SJRMC is committed to good stewardship principles to enhance services and care for our patients.
San Juan Regional Medical Center, a large nonprofit hospital, has a rich history and reputation of excellence. We are committed to providing the best healthcare in the community that we serve. It is because of our employees that we get the opportunity to provide the best care within the Four Corners. From nursing, support staff, to administration, we strive to provide our employees with a safe and healthy work environment that cultivates independence, teamwork, initiative and opportunities for growth through personal and professional support, training and development. Our compassionate employees come with a servant's heart, like the many previous generations of San Juan Regional Medical Center. This is why better is our mission.
