Lovelace Health Plan said Tuesday it will open a medical clinic in Los Lunas to serve 500 village employees and their families, who recently joined the health plan.
The size and location of the clinic have not been determined. It is expected to open by Jan. 1, 2013, Lovelace said in a news release.
The clinic will also serve anyone who is a member of the Lovelace Health Plan.
The 250,000-member Lovelace Health Plan is owned by Lovelace Health System, which operates six hospitals in the state.
The Business Weekly reported in its June 15 print edition that Lovelace Health Plan expects to double its member rolls this year.
Lovelace began offering coverage to Los Lunas employees and their families on July 1.
