Feds Provide Funding for New Health Center in Los Lunas

The First Choice Community Health Center in Los Lunas is getting an $8,153,989 grant to build a new primary care facility that will provide primary medical, dental and behavioral health services in Valencia County, U.S. Rep. Harry Teague announced.

The New Mexico Democrat made the announcement in a news release that said the grant was allocated through the Health Resources and Services Administration.

"For many of the small and rural communities throughout my district, seeing a doctor often requires hours of travel to a town miles away. Getting our local health centers the funding they need to add new providers or expand their hours and services will help our rural communities stay healthy," Teague said.

Our Patient-Centered Healthcare Home makes you feel welcomed and cared for by a team that:

  • Knows your health history and goals
  • Communicates effectively with you and with each other
  • Gives you appointments when you need them
  • Coordinates the complexity of labs, prescriptions, referrals and insurance

We go the extra mile to help our patients get help paying for their health care.

  • We assist with Medicaid applications
  • We help patients find insurance on the Marketplace
  • We enroll patients in special programs when they are eligible
  • We provide a discount for services based on family size and income
