Message From the CEO

I am privileged to have the opportunity to serve as the CEO of CHRISTUS Southern New Mexico. 

We have a staff of over a thousand caring and supportive staff who are dedicated to ensuring that you receive the right care at the right time at the right place. Our medical staff are second to none and bring a level of specialty support that is not commonly found in rural New Mexico.  Wound Care, dedicated Hospitalist Care, the Joint Center and Cardiac Cath Lab are just a small sample of the high-quality care that we bring to you close to home.

It is obvious that I am proud of my staff and the medical staff who support this hospital and the community. However, none of us could do our jobs if it were not for you, our patients, placing your trust in us each day to care for you and the people you love.

We have a positive vision for CHRISTUS Southern New Mexico. We will have our share of tough times that we share with other healthcare facilities but this is a strong organization, totally committed to exceeding in quality and service at lower cost. Our foundation is rooted in the commitment of this community. Our future is in our vision for the community and having the wisdom to make difficult but correct decisions. We are your hospital and it is our privilege to serve you – Our Family Caring for Yours.

My office is open for your concerns. Please feel free to contact my assistant for an appointment so I can reserve time to meet with you. Call 575-443-7840.

Jim Heckert, CEO
