Santa Fe Service UnitThe Santa Fe Service Unit covers an extensive portion of Northern New Mexico, from just north of Albuquerque to the Colorado Border. The Service Unit serves nine Pueblos: Cochiti, Nambe, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, San Felipe, San Juan, Santa Clara, Santo Domingo, and Tesuque.
The Santa Fe Service Unit facilities consist of the Santa Fe Indian Hospital and health clinics located in Santa Clara, Santo Domingo, San Felipe and Cochiti Pueblos. The Dulce Health Center and Taos/Picuris Health Center recently became their own Service Unit.
A wide range of ambulatory care services are offered at all facilities by a combination of direct services and contract care providers. In addition to general outpatient care the Santa Fe Service Unit facilities provide dental services, health education, nutrition services, behavioral health services, public health nursing, community diabetes education, occupational therapy, contract care, environmental health, and sanitation services. Special clinics focus on women's health, diabetes, children, and wellness. Additionally, each facility works closely with tribal governments and other programs in community outreach efforts focusing on health promotion and disease prevention.

About the CommunitiesThe Pueblos trace their history back to the 1100s when the original tribes moved down into New Mexico, spreading out through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to establish communities along the waterways. Each shares a common building pattern using adobe blocks to create structures around a central plaza; the oldest dwellings being in these main village areas. Upkeep of these homes is as important as the community's social and religious activities. Most pueblos have spread outward from the central village to include new developments and all have contemporary water and sewage systems and utilities.
The proud heritage of the pueblos has been kept alive for almost 1000 years. The Pueblo people continue to speak their tribal language and still retain their ancient, largely secret ceremonial lives. Many of the ancient crafts have been revived and today Pueblo artisans and craftsperson are of the highest caliber and are recognized nationally and internationally for their craftsmanship.
The Santa Fe Indian Hospital is located in the city of Santa Fe, the nation's oldest (1610) and highest (7,000') state capitol. With it's old sections' Indian-Spanish architecture, narrow winding streets, plaza, galleries, shops, restaurants, and cultural activities, the small city has become an international favorite with tourists.
To the north of Santa Fe are the Pueblos of San Juan, San Ildefonso, Nambe, Pojoaque, Tesuque, and Santa Clara. The landscape encircling these communities are spectacularly beautiful, offering break-taking views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Located to the south of the city are the Pueblos of Cochiti, Santo Domingo, and San Felipe. Although located close to the big city of Albuquerque, the pueblos have resisted the influences of modern life and retain their unique individuality.
