Lovelace Proposes Bed-Sharing With University of New Mexico Hospital in Place of New Facility

Written by Anuja Vaidya 

Albuquerque, N.M.-based Lovelace Health System announced that it has offered to enter into a bed-sharing agreement with the University of New Mexico Hospital, also in Albuquerque, as an alternative to UNMH building a new $146 million hospital.

Ron Stern, CEO of Lovelace, made the offer in a Feb. 22 letter to Steve McKernan, CEO of the University of New Mexico Health Science System.

UNMH has said that it needs a new 185,000-square-foot, 96-bed facility because it doesn't have enough adult inpatient beds at its current hospital. Officials from the hospital said that Lovelace's proposal would not alleviate the need for the new hospital.
