Presbyterian Medical Center is building a new hospital in Santa Fe, and Christus-St. Vincents hospital is expanding. Here's an article from today's newspaper.

Is the new hospital only for Presbyterian's patients? I find it interesting that St. Vincent's is expanding, when not long ago, they claimed they couldn't pay their nurses a good wage, and had to cut back on nursing staff. That's an expanded hospital I hope I never end up in, as an inpatient.

What would be the definition of a "good wage"?

I imagine Pres will accept all patients who have insurance/Medicare. They may also have to take a certain number of charity patients who do not have the financial resources. As for the salary issue, not-for-profit hospitals, like many other not-for-profit organizations, have "capital improvement budgets" which are reserved for capital improvements and cannot be used for non-capital expenses like salaries.

Presbyterian Hospital accepts most major insurance, including Medicare, Medicaid, and Presbyterian Health Plan. If you have questions about coverage, payment plans, or financial assistance, contact your insurance provider Presbyterian business office. Selected insurance they accept are noted below:

I know that, but when a hospital expands, it has to come up with money to hire new staff with, too.

Construction is going full steam ahead. The exterior is done (looks great) and the interior is progressing. Should be ready to open before the end of the year. They are making a huge hiring push and holding several job fairs to recruit staff.
