Lovelace and Atrinea Health have partnered to bring a new model for health care to Rio Rancho.
That’s according to Dr. John Cruickshank, the chief medical officer for Lovelace Health System. The model is called patient-centered medical home.

The Rio Rancho primary care clinic is owned and operated by Atrinea, which employs all the clinic’s health care providers — including four primary care doctors who coordinate patient care — and is exclusively for Lovelace Health Plan members.
