Our mission is to provide high quality and accessible healthcare to the underserved communities in our state.

The goal of our Executive Clinical Team is to support our providers and behavioral health therapists who work tirelessly at our 50+ community health centers across the state.”
David Hanson, DDS
Corporate Dental Director
“During my third year of dental school I had an opportunity to visit the Dominican Republic and provide dental care in a small, isolated village on the border of Haiti. The life changing experience I had and the connections I made with the Dominican people opened my eyes to a career in public health. I’m proud to say I work for an organization dedicated to making positive changes for those who may not otherwise have access to health care. Now going on over 17 years, PMS has allowed me to use my skills as a dentist combined with my passion for helping others to fulfill a lifelong mission of taking care of the underserved.”
John Sahs, MD
Corporate Director of Psychiatry
“Before coming to PMS I trained the Psychiatrists of the future, in addition to my strong motivation to train, my driving force in my career was to ensure that the underserved got the highest quality of care. When I was ready to make a change not only did leaving NYC to the beautiful mountains of NM appealed to me the mission and need for quality providers that PMS strives to fulfill is what brought me to PMS. In the time I have been with PMS I feel the mission of PMS lives up to organization and its obligations and exceeds them.”
Santiago Ayala, MD

“Over the past 6 years, PMS has not only given me the opportunity to continue to serve my community and provide excellent care to the underserved, it has also allowed me to grow professionally; I’m now a proud member of the Clinical Affairs department working alongside great colleagues and more importantly, great human beings. Together, we are working to provide support, leadership and guidance to clinicians and clinical support staff across the beautiful state of New Mexico from Torreon to Hobbs to Santa Fe to Reserve; I’m truly honored and more motivated than ever to be part of PMS.”
