Study Ranks Christus St. Vincent NM's Second Most Affordable Hospital

NerdWallet says it analyzed the 100 most common treatments at 32 hospitals in New Mexico

A data-crunching website says Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center is the second most affordable hospital in the state. 

NerdWallet Health says it "analyzed the 100 most common treatments at 32 hospitals in New Mexico to find the most affordable hospitals." 

It asked which hospitals in the state offer the highest number of affordable treatments, what the treatments are and how satisfied patients are of the hospitals.

Christus St. Vincent—which the study notes is Northern New Mexico's only Level 3 trauma center—came in second place behind Farmington's San Juan Regional Medical Center. Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque came in third. Out of the ten hospitals listed on the survey, Christus St. Vincent had the fourth-lowest patient satisfaction rate, at 52 percent.
