Medical Minute: LAMC draws unique pool of talent

-A A +A
By The Staff

This month, Los Alamos Medical Center will celebrate, with hospitals across the country, “Doctors Day.” Traditionally marked on March 30, this date is known industry-wide as a special time set aside to recognize the invaluable contribution made by physicians.We’ve all seen the TV dramas staged around hospitals – emergency rooms, operating suites and doctors’ lives. While it’s easy to get caught up in those plot lines, it is vitally important for communities to realize that their physicians are the keys to a viable healthcare system. They are also real people with busy daily routines, who are often called upon to improve the quality of, or even save, the lives of their friends and neighbors. So what makes LAMC’s medical staff truly special?All communities think they are “unique.” Los Alamos is unique, especially when it comes to health care. A major employer the size and importance of Los Alamos National Laboratory generally provides support for a physician distribution rich in specialists.The county as a whole, and in particular LAMC (licensed for only 47 in-patient beds), is the beneficiary of this phenomenon.
