The Public Affairs Office (PAO) of the New Mexico Veterans Affairs Health Care System (NMVAHCS) is the main portal of communication between the VA and the state's residents.

Our purpose is to keep our communities across New Mexico and our own employees informed of current programs and upcoming events for our Veterans.

This occurs through a variety of communications methods; including all-staff email announcements, overhead announcements, electronic billboards, news releases, media visits and interviews, newsletters, social media posts, intranet, internet, special events, congressional visits, town hall meetings and other venues.

Our office is located in Building 41, Room 4C-123 at the Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center, 1501 San Pedro Drive SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87108.
