Our Home

When you choose UNM Hospitals, you're choosing to live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the heart of the Southwest. Albuquerque is a blend of old and new, rural and urban, artistic expression and natural wonder. Living in Albuquerque is not for spectators! Be prepared to jump right in to the vibrant, engaging culture of the Southwest.

Diversity

Our vision is to become a nationally recognized leader in diversity, equity and inclusion in U.S. health care – to be sought after for our innovation, creativity, significant results and expertise. To help us provide the best possible care for the wide range of patients we serve, we support our professionals with training, consultation, and programs that address diversity, equity and inclusion.

Our Partners:

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) at UNM Hospitals

Created in October 2010, the UNMH Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion leads the effort to make sure that every UNMH patient receives the safest, most effective, most sensitive medical care possible, regardless of the patient’s race, ethnicity, or any other group identity. We do this through data collection and analysis; community collaboration; cultural “competence” training, education and consulting; and process improvement.

Our vision is to become a nationally-recognized leader in diversity, equity and inclusion in U.S. healthcare; sought after for our innovation, creativity, significant results, and expertise, particularly regarding the populations we serve.

Identifying and addressing any health disparities in the care patients receive at UNM Hospitals is the first, and principal, goal of the DEI initiative. Health disparities are “racial or ethnic differences in the quality of healthcare that are not due to access-related factors or clinical needs, preferences, and appropriateness of intervention.” (Unequal Treatment,Institute of Medicine (IOM), 2003).

"UNM Hospitals is proud to have an Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and we completely support sustained efforts at ensuring equity in the delivery of healthcare. Disparities are multi-factorial, and we must be prepared to address them in the overall system, in our processes, and in the care given by our healthcare professionals. The Office of DEI will ensure that we reduce any identified disparities, and improve the care we provide for an increasingly diverse patient population," said Steve McKernan, CEO UNM Hospitals. 

Five bodies guide and implement DEI:

The executive-level Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Steering Committee focuses on governance, leadership and systems

The “4 C’s” task forces:

  • Compliance: active since November 2009: data collection and analysis, and compliance with national standards
  • Community: active since July 2010: mutually beneficial community engagement and partnership
  • Competence: language access and services, and staff “cultural competence” training and development
  • Care: patient involvement, and creating a culturally and linguistically appropriate care model and processes

Nursing

As a nurse at UNM Hospitals, you’ll be part of a collaborative team that continually works to improve patient health and nursing practice. With our size and scope, you can choose from a broad range of disciplines and unique opportunities. No matter which area suits your interest and expertise, you’ll care for a diverse group of New Mexicans in a supportive academic medical center environment.

Our nurses go above and beyond for patients, displaying exceptional skill and passion. The day-to-day excellence of our team is one of the reasons why. In 2016, UNMH was one of only two recipients of the National Patient Safety Foundation DAISY Awards for Extraordinary Nurses. Join a state leader in nursing, and discover the support, recognition, and professional development opportunities you’ve been looking for.

Nursing Shared Governance

We value having a system that welcomes everyone into the decision-making process. Since 2004, we’ve employed shared governance, a structure that facilitates communication, encourages partnerships, promotes professional development, and recognizes each individual’s contributions.
