Access to data was critical for the orthopedic surgeons at St. Luke's Health System in Boise, Idaho, when they launched a project to eliminate hospital-acquired infections in 2011.

It enabled them to routinely monitor the system's infection rate after knee and hip replacement surgeries, laminectomy procedures and spinal fusion surgeries. The team used data to reduce foot traffic in operating rooms and change how patients' skin was prepped.

Spring brings new life around each corner and we enjoy seeing growing bellies as moms visit our birthing centers. This spring, we are happy to take time to salute all mothers and mother figures for the widely celebrated Mother’s Day holiday. At Labor of Love, we recognize the extensive array of emotions this day can bring. Mother’s Day is celebrated in more than 40 countries worldwide.

Lovelace to open new clinic in Albuquerque


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Lovelace is opening a new medical clinic in the South Valley. It will be located in the Las Estancias Shopping Center near Coors and Rio Bravo, the same area where a new theater was recently built.

Construction is set to start in July.

Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital helps retired doctor regain brain function after rare infection

Dr. William Cole, 77, has played bass clarinet throughout his life since high school. The retired family medicine physician joined a local band in Albuquerque, playing more regularly over the last two years than he was able to during his 34-year career practicing medicine in Juneau, AK. It was just one of the perks of retiring to New Mexico five years ago – the biggest perk being close to his daughter and three grandchildren. Retirement seemed to be treating him well in the warmth of an unseasonably mild winter, until one Thursday morning in February.
