Since 1985, Lovelace Westside Hospital has been committed to offering Rio Rancho and Westside residents the latest in technology and high-quality care. We are proud to be ranked as a Top Hospital for Patient Safety by Consumer Reports and to be the only hospital in New Mexico recognized as a Truven Health Analytics Top 100 Hospital.

In 2011, the hospital opened a new Birthing Center, which brought birthing services to Rio Rancho and the Westside of Albuquerque for the first time in 14 years. The unit features 24/7 anesthesiology coverage, an OB surgical suite for C-sections, and other state-of-the-art support.

Our 24-hour emergency department offers patients the ability to see a provider in 30 minutes or less, and also features four dedicated private rooms for children and their families.

We are proud to offer a 64-slice CT scanner, digital mammography and new MRI capability. We also feature a surgical and medical weight loss program, offering effective options for individuals whose weight increases the risk for health problems or causes a decreased quality of life.

Lovelace Westside Hospital offers the only Inpatient Pediatric Unit providing care to Rio Rancho and Albuquerque’s Westside. The Inpatient Pediatric Unit has coverage 24 hours a day, seven days week with skilled and compassionate nurses and specialists.

We are proud to be the only designated Pinwheel Champion in New Mexico by the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care (IPFCC). Patient and family centered care is a mutual partnership between health care providers, patients and families. We will plan, deliver and evaluate your health care together so you can expect a safe and high quality hospital stay.
