Welcome to the Albuquerque Area of the Indian Health Service
The Indian Health Service Albuquerque Area is responsible for providing health services to 27 distinctly different Tribal groups. The Area serves 20 Pueblos, two Apache bands, three Navajo Chapters and two Ute Tribes across four Southwestern states. Additionally, numerous Tribal members from throughout the United States who live, work, or attend school in the urban centers of the Albuquerque Area are provided services in health facilities operated by the Indian Health Service.
The administrative headquarters of the Area is located in Albuquerque, NM. Across the Area are five hospitals, 11 health centers, and 12 field clinics, which deliver care at the community level.
In addition to these facilities, the Albuquerque Area has two specialized care facilities. For Native youth suffering from substance abuse problems, New Sunrise Regional Treatment Center (NSRTC) provides residential treatment services. The Albuquerque Indian Dental Clinic (AIDC) provides dental care for children, teens and young adults up to age 30.
