NEXUS HEALTH News:
SANTA FE — Nexus Health, Meridian, and Page celebrated the groundbreaking of a new state-of-the-art, 95,000-square-foot medical office building and comprehensive cancer care center Friday, May 5, at 4200 Beckner Road in Santa Fe.
The facility, to be located on an 18-acre parcel of vacant land in the Las Soleras Master Plan District, will provide affordable, outpatient healthcare services to the growing population of Northern New Mexico. The project, with an overall investment exceeding $100 million, is expected to bring significant jobs and tax revenue to the City of Santa Fe.
Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber, city officials, Nexus Health representatives, The US Oncology Network representatives, Meridian executives, and project partners, including Skiles Group, Page, Tierra West, and Orion Enterprises, were in attendance and spoke about the project and what it means for the community of Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico.
“Good healthcare is essential for everyone,” Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber said. “It’s especially important when it comes to cancer care. This facility is a giant step toward adding to our capacity and strength as a community to care for each other, our families, and our friends and colleagues who need help. It is something we can all be proud of. It’s exciting to have the best possible care in the world right here in Santa Fe. We’re not only breaking the ground. We are breaking into a whole new level of treatment, care, community engagement, and top-notch patient-centered health.”
“The reason Nexus Health exists is because we thought healthcare could be better,” Dr. Scott Herbert of Nexus Health said. “We believe that patients should receive the best care and in the most cost-effective location possible. Having a new building where multiple specialties are in one location is going to make the patient experience better. We are so pleased to bring this incredible facility to the community of Santa Fe. Nexus Health is establishing itself as the outpatient center of choice for this community. We pride ourselves on providing quick access to care and an alternative to the traditional corporate hospital model for care delivery.”
The three-story building is being designed and developed to accommodate many physician specialties and subspecialties in one convenient location, including primary care, general surgery, cardiology, pulmonary, medical oncology, infusion, radiation oncology, imaging, lab, pharmacy, breast surgery, orthopedics, physical therapy, urology, gastroenterology, neurology, rheumatology, neurosurgery, and gynecologic oncology services. The building will have approximately 520 parking stalls and decorative main entry towers, a sky bridge, one linear accelerator vault with room for future expansion, and a prefabricated paneling system to create depth and articulation to the building elevations.
Nexus Health is an independent, physician-owned, physician-led practice that is putting patients first. Nexus aims to challenge the traditional model of today’s health care delivery model that is dominated by corporations and insurance companies. Nexus is focused on patients, access to care, and less on the corporate bottom-line. Nexus Health is a network of highly regarded providers who want to maintain an independent outpatient, non-hospital-based practice, with over a dozen specialties coming online in the next 2 years.
In the summer of 2024, our brand-new 95,000 ft. medical office building located at the south side of Santa Fe will be complete. This will house the providers from various specialties under one roof, including oncology, orthopedics, primary care, and various surgical and nonsurgical specialties. They will be supported by the latest state of the art equipment & systems to care for family health care needs. For more information, see www.nexushealth-nm.com.
