Hidalgo Medical Services Family Medicine Residency Program Receives Reaccreditation

Silver City, NM (December 29, 2016) – On June 9, 2016, the Hidalgo Medical Services (HMS) Family Medicine Residency Program had its reaccreditation site visit from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  According to the ACGME, they are a “private, 501(C)(3), not-for-profit organization that sets standards for U.S. graduate medical education (residency and fellowship) programs and the institutions that sponsor them, and renders accreditation decisions based on compliance with these standards.”

HMS is Hidalgo and Grant Counties’ only federally qualified community health center and serves approximately 16,000 patients every year.  “The HMS Family Medicine Residency Program received its initial 3-year accredited residency program by the ACGME,” states Darrick Nelson, MD, HMS Chief Medical Officer and Family Medicine Residency Program Director.

“Recognized as New Mexico’s first teaching health center, the HMS Family Medicine Residency Program continues to develop as a regional and national leader in many aspects,” states Dan Otero, HMS Chief Executive Officer.  “Providers in our community have come together and worked very hard over the last few years to ensure quality patient care and patient safety through our Family Medicine Residency Program,” adds Otero.
