Curry County was awarded a “Best Practices Award” at the 16th annual New Mexico Infrastructure and Finance Conference held last week in Albuquerque

The award is for outstanding achievement in connection with the construction and completion of the Melrose Healthcare Clinic, a county news release said.

“The county is very excited about the honor and it is a result of many individuals’ hard work, dedication and a community working together,” County Manager Lance Pyle said.

Construction was funded by the Community Development Block Grant. The facility had its grand opening in July.

The Melrose Healthcare Clinic is managed by La Casa Health Services.
