Our Mission

Southern New Mexico Surgery Center, LLC will provide complete perioperative services for operative and other invasive procedures, including the immediate postoperative phase, to all patients without discrimination. The care provided is not limited to surgical intervention, but also embraces the psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of the patients and their families.

This mission is fulfilled in collaboration with other ancillary and support services throughout the facility. To achieve and maintain this mission, a comprehensive patient assessment, reassessment and plan of perioperative patient care is consistently developed and implemented for all patients.


Our Goals:

Southern New Mexico Surgery Center of Alamogordo, located in Otero County in south-central New Mexico, assumes certain responsibilities in the basic functions of the institution including service and teaching.

  • We believe our primary responsibility is to perceive, initiate and provide a comprehensive nursing care program, based on established professional standards at the lowest possible cost to our patients.

  • We believe we have the responsibility to serve as patient advocates and implement the Patient’s Bill of Rights.

  • We believe implementation of the perioperative role is essential to effective nursing care for the surgical patient.

  • We believe that each patient shall have an individualized plan of care developed with the appreciation of his or her ethnic, cultural and social uniqueness.

  • We believe surgical intervention not only affects physiological activities, but may also generate stress, anxiety and/or discomfort which can disturb the individual, the family and significant others.

  • We believe we have the responsibility to contribute to the continuity of patient care by collaborating with other healthcare disciplines in the performance of their functions.

  • We believe it is our responsibility to support programs that contribute to excellence in the performance of patient care by present or future team members.

  • We believe we have the responsibility to our staff to develop an inservice program directed toward utilization and appreciation of their potential service.

  • We believe we have the responsibility to develop courteous working relationships characterized by mutual respect and understanding.
