Clinic closes in northwest NM

BLOOMFIELD, N.M. (KRQE) – Money  – or lack of – is the reason a Farmington hospital is shutting its clinic in a neighboring city.

San Juan Regional Medical Center will close its Bloomfield clinic in June and move the clinic’s patients and five-person medical staff to the hospital’s clinic in Aztec.

The Daily Times reports that consolidation of the clinics is intended to help the medical center deal with a nearly $10 million funding deficit, including a nearly $370,000 annual operating loss at the Bloomfield site.
