Socorro County health services provide healthcare in a rural setting with big-city standards. From our state-operated health department to the MRI machine at the hospital, nearly all of your medical needs can be met within the county. Each of our sizable communities boasts of its own health clinic: Magdalena, Alamo Navajo Reservation, and of course, Socorro.

Socorro General Hospital (SGH) has a substantial number of physicians on staff whose specialties range from podiatry, obstetrics and rehabilitation services to mental health. Socorro County has over a dozen physicians practicing here. Nurses, dentists, ophthalmologists and chiropractors are also key elements in Socorro County healthcare.


Socorro General Hospital is the cornerstone to our healthcare system. It is an accredited, modern, 24-bed critical access hospital that provides high-quality medical services to the Socorro community and surrounding region. It includes a modern, newly remodeled emergency department and provides for a helicopter landing pad to allow rapid medical air transportation for high acuity cases. In addition to emergency care, the state-of-the-art medical facility also provides comprehensive outpatient and inpatient medical care services, including traditional care such as surgery and obstetrics, diagnostic care such as MRIs and CAT scans, rehabilitation care such as respiratory therapy and physical therapy and preventive care such as osteoporosis imaging and hematology.

Socorro General Hospital also offers home health care and hospice services and is staffed by highly qualified and caring professionals. In addition, SGH is affiliated with a family practice medical clinic (Socorro General Medical Group) for convenient, efficient primary care services and also operates specialty clinics for general surgery and podiatry.


The hospital is the pride of our community and includes a staff of doctors, nurses allied medical personnel and support staff all working together to provide friendly, caring, high quality healthcare to all who pass through its doors.
