The company looks to provide for Albuquerque's communities through their 200 providers, 7 acute care hospitals, 26 clinics, and 5 emergency rooms in the city.
With the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), Lovelace Health System has been monitoring the virus and virus tracking systems, as well as established an emergency command center to monitor resources and plan responses.
The company provides information about what to do if you experience symptoms, what the symptoms are, and how hospitals are providing care for patients confirmed with COVID-19. The company has set up a drive-through testing site for coronavirus testing. The testing is targeted towards those who have mild symptoms. Lovelace aims to keep emergency rooms clear for more severe cases and other emergencies. Since the drive-through test site has been open, Lovelace has seen 1,300 patients and tested 900 of them, and will continue to test.
