Due to this level of service, ACHSNM has earned national recognition for respiratory care services, meeting stringent guidelines that put the hospital in the top 15 percent of facilities nationwide.

Area Veterans' Support & Services

Las Cruces, El Paso, and White Sands are home to some of the nation’s top military facilities. The Las Cruces economy benefits from hundreds of millions of dollars coming from White Sands Missile Range and military base, Holloman Air Force Base, Ft. Bliss, and Biggs Army Airfield, all located in the immediate area. As a result of these major military installations, there are tremendous veterans medical and PX facilities within a 68-mile radius of Las Cruces, making the city a great place for our nation’s veterans to retire.

Veterans' Health Care & Services

William Beaumont Army Medical Center, Ft. Bliss

William Beaumont Army Medical Center traces its origins all the way back to the 1850s. U.S. Army cavalry soldiers and troops were assigned to the various camps to defend the settlers and the U.S. border. Doctors and medics were needed for medical support of the soldiers, which gave rise to the military facilities on base. Today, William Beaumont Army Medical Center is one of the leading military medical facilities in the U.S. and is located just 45 minutes away from Las Cruces.

William Beaumont Army Medical Center will be upgrading its facilities to a state-of-the art hospital featuring 135 beds, 10 operating rooms, and 30 specialty clinics. The improved medical center will include: women’s health services, behavioral health, physical and occupational therapy, gastroenterology, oncology, hematology, general surgery, family medicine, vascular surgery, plastic surgery, and more. The expansion project will also include a full array of imaging services, inpatient and outpatient pharmacy, laboratory, patient administration, logistics, dining facility, administration, and limited retail services.
