Lincoln County Medical Center (LCMC) recently earned the Quest for Excellence Critical Access-Rural Hospital Award, the New Mexico Hospital Association’s (NMHA’s) premier honor for New Mexico’s rural hospitals.
LCMC was honored for a project that used nationally recognized patient quality data to significantly reduce the wait times from emergency departments to inpatient admission.
The award was presented in a ceremony at the 75th Annual Meeting this year.
LCMC is one of just three New Mexico hospitals to earn the competitive award for work conducted between August 2019-August 2020.
