ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The governor announced Friday that the state has selected the old Lovelace Hospital, on Gibson in Albuquerque, as a site for "step down hospital service."
According to the Army Corps of Engineers, construction at the old Lovelace building began Friday. Retrofitting the building is expected to take 14 days.
Miyamura High School in Gallup was also chosen to be an alternate care facility.
The sites will serve patients during the COVID-19 crisis.
