Holy Cross Hospital, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), formed in 1936, while America was in the midst of its greatest economic disaster and Taos socialite, Mabel Dodge Luhan, saw that her community desperately needed a proper hospital. She donated a house on La Posta Road and it was named Holy Cross Hospital by The Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, who ran the hospital for nearly twenty-five years. While initially small and with limited services, the hospital established a standard of excellence in care and community outreach that has never wavered.
Holy Cross Medical Center’s vison is a progressive organization where great care comes together to create a healthy community.
