The Joint Center is an inpatient service of Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center

Our mission is to provide high-quality, top-service care to the orthopaedic patients not only in Otero county, but all counties of New Mexico. Our vision is to be the preferred healthcare provider for elective joint replacements in New Mexico and surrounding states.

To succeed, we have started the journey towards DNV accreditation and also the invitation process to become a BCBS Distinction Center beginning with the development of the orthopeadic unit and orthopaedic staff.

This unit is unique in that it is a shared-governance model of nursing and healthcare where membership participation is critical. Commitment towards the mission and vision are essential to the development of a solid team. My expectations and the expectations of GCRMC are that each individual team member will make it their priority to give 100% towards quality and service in the care of their patients. The multidisciplinary team will work together to accomplish these goals.
