Our vision is simple, to positively impact the health, well-being, and quality of life of those we serve. It starts with our commitment to our seniors by being aware of social determinants of health and how they affect our community and how we can correlate our services with those needs.”
Dan Otero, CEO of HMS, shared, “We would like to thank all of our employees at our senior centers that contribute individually into this collective effort to pursue excellence for the benefit of our seniors in Lordsburg, Silver City, Santa Clara, Mimbres, and Gila.”
