Founded in 1996, Southwest CARE Center (SCC) has been a model of excellence in the treatment and care of people living with HIV. We now open our doors as a primary health care center, providing the same high standard of care to the entire community. With three office locations in Santa Fe and a satellite office in Taos, we employ a warm and compassionate staff with familiarity of the diverse communities of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico.

Our focus at Southwest CARE Center is to provide a compassionate, patient-centered environment where everyone can feel comfortable and respected while receiving the highest quality health care available.

Services are available regardless of your ability to pay. See more information on this under the case management section.


SCC is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration - HIV/AIDS Bureau and the New Mexico Department of Health.
