Leapfrog Group Names Lovelace Hospitals to Best Hospitals for Billing Ethics List

Lovelace Medical Center, Heart Hospital of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center, Lovelace Women’s Hospital, Lovelace Westside Hospital and Lovelace Regional Hospital have been named as The 2022 Best Hospitals and Surgery Centers for Billing Ethics by Money and the Leapfrog Group. These Lovelace hospitals comprise five of the six facilities in New Mexico to make the list, which includes 565 hospitals and 10 surgical centers nationally.
“Being one of only two hospitals systems in New Mexico to be named to The Best Hospitals for Billing Ethics is a proud moment for all of us,” said Janelle Raborn, market leader for Lovelace Health System. “It shows our dedication to delivering the highest quality of care to our patients, while ensuring that we adhere to the maximum ethical standards for billing. Patients can rest easy knowing they are being well-cared-for and educated on the bill they can expect to receive for their stay.”
As we wrap up our 100th year of serving the community, we want to thank our dedicated team members. We are grateful for the healthcare heroes at our hospitals, in our clinics and those behind the scenes, who commit day in and day out to keeping our patients safe and healthy. #Lovelace100
