The rich history of GCRMC proves a community that comes together can accomplish great things. From the early conception in 1948 when Gerald Champion and other community leaders decided to provide Otero County with a hospital of its own to the opening in August 1949. Mr. Champion died before the opening of the new hospital and the hospital received his name. Sixty-two years later, this hospital still belongs to the community of Alamogordo.

Many renovations and expansions saw Gerald Champion Memorial Hospital reach its maximum growth in 1996 and plans began to focus on building a new facility. Once again our Board of directors were focused on the community. This time a priority was bringing the Holloman Air Force and Alamogordo communities together utilizing one hospital for inpatient services. There was no blueprint for this model , but there were dedicated men and women from both communities with vision. Many trips to Washington DC resulted in this first unique relationship of a shared facility. Physicians from HAFB have full admission status at GCRMC to treat Department of Defense patients and their dependents.

Since December 2010, this shared- facility model has been in existence for 11 years. We all agree it has been a great success story . The future holds many possibilities for this facility and the community that was not afraid to do something different . GCRMC will continue its commitment to technological excellence, maintaining state of the art capabilities in the services that are provided, developing new services, recruiting new physicians and continuing to enhance the existing electronic medical record as priorities for our future. GCRMC is ranked among the top five percent of hospitals in the United States for levels of completion in their electronic medical record.
