Construction was recently completed on Three Crosses Regional Hospital and an adjacent medical office building in Las Cruces, New Mexico. McCarthy Building Companies served as construction manager of the hospital and MOB. Other team members included Spangenberg Phillips Tice Architecture (architect) and PEC (M/E/P engineer).
The medical campus, which broke ground in November 2018, opened to patients in October 2020. Developed by Goldenrod Companies/Tetrad Property Group and located in the heart of Las Cruces, the $75-million project includes a single-story, 97,000-square-foot hospital and a two-story, 65,000-square-foot MOB.
Three Crosses Regional Hospital is the first new general hospital constructed in Las Cruces—New Mexico’s second-largest city—in 17 years. The full-service, acute care hospital has 36 patient beds, four surgical suites, 10 intensive care unit beds, 10 post-op and 10 pre-op beds and a 10-bed emergency room. The hospital also includes diagnostic imaging services, labs and an interventional cardiology and heart program.
An adjacent MOB houses an ambulatory surgery center, as well as physician office and exam space for cardiology, internal medicine, general surgery, pain management and orthopedics.
Situated on a 15-acre site that formerly housed Las Cruces Country Club, the Three Crosses medical campus anchors a 91-acre development district. A future expansion may include an assisted living center, an urgent care center, physician medical offices, day care, a transitional rehabilitation hospital and a dialysis center.
Designed in a traditional Las Cruces architectural style, the buildings feature exposed wood elements, native stone and clay tile roofs.
A rustic porte-cochere greets patients as they arrive to the hospital, and the main lobby is reminiscent of a resort hotel. Hospitality-centered interior spaces are designed to ease patient anxiety and create a welcoming environment for patients, visitors and hospital staff.
