A new First Choice Community Healthcare facility opened in January 2011 at 1401 Williams SE, in the South Broadway area.The 15,650 square foot health center and WIC site was made possible by a partnership between Bernalillo County, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the State of New Mexico and the First Choice Community Healthcare Board of Directors.
District 2 Commissioner Art De La Cruz helped to arrange the lease agreement between First Choice and Bernalillo County.
“Healthcare is one of the most valuable resources that we can help provide for the community. With the additional space and tools, I know the community will be heavily utilizing this clinic and the services they provide. It is my pleasure to work with an agency like First Choice that gives so much back to the community,” says Commissioner De La Cruz.
