This brand new 4,437 square foot building is a very attractive brick structure that was completed in March of 2016. The parking lot has spaces for 29 vehicles including 3 spots for the physically challenged. The facility is strategically positioned next to Socorro General Hospital, a 24-bed, critical access hospital and regional medical center that offers inpatient and outpatient services to the communities in areas of Socorro and Catron counties. The interior is designed to be low-maintenance and boasts state-of-the-art equipment and amenities. Fresenius Medical Care North America has committed to a long-term lease with an initial period of 15-years and three 5-year renewal options to follow.
The picturesque city of Socorro is located in the Rio Grande Valley approximately 75 miles south of Albuquerque in the heart of the Southwestern state of New Mexico. The region is home to Sandia National Laboratories and Kirtland Air Force Base as well as the University of New Mexico. In recent years Forbes rated Albuquerque the best city in America for business and careers while U.S. News and World report ranked it among the top ten best cities to live. Albuquerque’s rich art scene and storied culture are among the primary supporters of jobs and tourism. It also lies at the center of the New Mexico Technology Corridor, a concentration of high-tech private companies and government institutions along the Rio Grande. The Albuquerque Metropolitan Area is home to more than one million residents.
Included in the floor plan are the following; a large patient treatment area, reception area and business office with adjoining records room, waiting room, conference room, break room with full kitchen, private restrooms, exam room, large storage area, water treatment equipment room, classroom-style corporate training center and private offices for the on-site social worker and dietitian. In addition to the dialysis-related medical equipment, each of the treatment stations has its own large, flat screen monitor that can be used to watch television or movies or access the Internet while the patient is treated. The layout of the building makes for very efficient use of the space. The interior and exterior are very clean and well-maintained and provide a comfortable and inviting environment for staff and patients alike.
In summary, because this is a new medical facility providing a vital life-sustaining service to a population with an ever increasing need, Fresenius plans to be in this clinic serving the people of this community for a very long time into the future.
