Our Philosophy & Mission

Our Philosophy & Mission

Our Mission…

To improve the health of people living in the culturally diverse communities of New Mexico through access to the highest quality health care, education, research and advocacy.

Our Philosophy…

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. Considered the future model of health care delivery in the nation, Southwest CARE Center is one of the largest and most experienced providers of HIV care in southwestern United States.

As a leader in HIV care, our physicians, nurses and case managers are active on national, state and local levels in the development and improvement of services for persons with HIV/AIDS. We provide one-stop accessible and coordinated care by including medical, pharmacy, case management, prevention, testing and counseling, research, patient advocacy, nutrition, housing assistance, mental health services and substance use disorder counseling on site.

As we move toward expansion of primary care services, Southwest CARE Center will use the same wrap-around service model delivered within the context of our core values: compassion, communication, vision, teamwork, and respect to provide healthcare that every person deserves.
