Working parents have a lot on their plates, and that stress can weigh on minds and bodies. New research shows women working more than 40 hours a week are doing even more damage to their health. But there is something that can be done, even if changing work schedules is not an option.
Dr. Brendan Cavanaugh of the New Mexico Heart Institute, who operates out of Heart Hospital at Lovelace Medical Center, says most young parents dealing with heart problems face stress at work or home.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Three New Mexico medical practices are among the 200 nationwide selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to participate in a care delivery model that encourages higher quality, more coordinated cancer care.
Indeed, one Albuquerque medical group’s treatment methods — New Mexico Hematology Consultants — will be incorporated in the initiative.
Heart Hospital of New Mexico at the Lovelace Medical Center has received the Mission: Lifeline Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award for implementing specific high-quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who suffer severe heart attacks. This is the second year in a row the Heart Hospital of New Mexico at the Lovelace Medical Center has been recognized with this award.
ALBUQUERQUE, JUNE 14, 2016 — Lovelace Westside Hospital was one of three hospitals in the state of New Mexico to earn a four-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
The star-rating is based on seven criteria: mortality outcomes, readmission outcomes, safety outcomes, patient experience (via the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Care Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) Survey), imaging efficiency, timeliness of care and effectiveness of care.
Relief is on the way for the ever-crowded emergency room at the University of New Mexico Hospital.
It’s routine for patients to sit for hours in jammed emergency room waiting areas and then in temporary beds adjacent to the ER while waiting to be admitted. A patient transfer agreement with Lovelace Health System should provide some relief.
