Progress on the Trane energy savings project continues! Lightbulbs throughout the hospital are being replaced with much more energy efficient bulbs to save money on our utilities. The boiler in the Hospital building has also been replaced as part of this project.
4k video towers and the upgrade of two of our 1080p video towers. 4k is the highest resolution and allows surgeons the best visualization during laparoscopic and arthroscopic surgical procedures. Thank You Taos County!

We had a 20-year old portable that finally was no longer able to take an x-ray. The old system operated using Computed Radiology (CR) plates that required the technologist to take the x-ray and then go back to the department, place the plate into the CR reader for processing. This takes about 30 seconds before knowing if the image was of good quality.
The MUSE EKG project is a software and interface system that collects and manages the EKGs done here at the hospital. Without it, we simply have to print the EKG and scan it into the medical records. Now we will be able to manage them all electronically (once installed in June, 2018) by simply sending them to the medical records. And the reading physician, either the Cardiologist or Dr. White, can do it electronically on the MUSE software.
