Montoya, Adobe Acres, Alameda, Apache, Arroyo Del Oso, Bandelier, Bellehaven, Chelwood, Collet Park, Dolores Gonzales, Double Eagle, East San Jose, Edward Gonzales, Emerson, Georgia O’Keeffe, Governor Bent, Hawthorne, Inez, John Baker, Lavaland, Longfellow, Lowell, MacArthur, Mission Avenue, Monte Vista, Mountain View, North Star, Reginald Chavez, San Antonito, Sandia Base, Sierra Vista, Sombra del Monte, Southwest Learning Center and Sunset View.

“Our Day of Service is an important part of our commitment to improve the health of the patients, members and communities we serve, and we love being able to get out in the schools and encourage kids to make healthy habits a part of their lives,” said Kathy Davis, RN, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer for Presbyterian.
