About Us

Presbyterian's story is really the story of the remarkable people who have chosen to work here. Starting with Reverend Cooper who began our journey in 1908, the hard work thousands of physicians, employees, board members, and other volunteers brought Presbyterian from a tiny tuberculosis sanatorium to a statewide healthcare system, serving more than 700,000 New Mexicans.

Presbyterian Santa Fe exists to improve the health of patients, members and the communities we serve in Northern New Mexico. Through our commitment to these communities, we are expanding choice, enhancing quality and elevating the patient experience.
