La Familia Medical Center
La Familia Medical Center is a community health center providing high quality comprehensive medical, dental, and health-education services to everyone, with special emphasis on the uninsured and underserved.
La Familia Medical Center is a northern New Mexico community health and wellness organization that provides health and dental care including preventive and educational outreach programs for anyone in need regardless of financial ability to make payment for services. These services are affordable and culturally sensitive and are delivered in a manner respectful of the patient’s privacy, rights, and dignity, regardless of their financial resources.
There is a growing number of people including children who do not have access to medical or dental care, because of their cost. LFMC provided medical/dental services to over 20,000 people last year. It affords patients medical and dental care free or at moderate rates depending on income levels with emphasis on the underserved and disadvantaged at all three of its clinics in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It offers a unique combination of health prevention, education and treatment for working-poor families who are underinsured or have no health insurance of any kind. We also provide health care for the homeless at our Healthcare clinic for the homeless.
Many families are either without insurance or are underinsured, because they are no longer employed full time, pay higher energy costs which have eroded their family budget or cannot afford high insurance premiums. They are in need of medical and dental services that are economically feasible and easy to access.
