Starting in 1969, La Clinica del Pueblo de Rio Arriba began as a small community clinic started by local individuals who recognized the importance of having a local health care clinic. These individuals, or Founders, worked hard to overcome many obstacles and were able to persevere. LCDP has grown in the last 50 years and has become a standard of what a health care center that is passionate to serve looks like.

What started as a small medical clinic with volunteers now includes Medical, Dental, Behavioral Health, and EMS Departments. Our Board of Directors and Administration have worked hard to ensure that not only does our clinic offer excellent providers, but our providers are caring individuals with a heart for our communities.

At LCDP, “A small community clinic with a BIG HEART” isn’t just a slogan, it’s a way of life.
