how did the great depression affect new mexican hospitals?
- BabsLv 71 decade agoFavorite Answer
New Mexico was a very poor state until, beginning in the 1980s, real estate took off yielding a much broader property tax base. It became chic for celebrities to live in Santa Fe.
There were orders of Catholic nuns staffing Catholic hospitals so even during the Depression the poor were not denied medical care. However in the extreme rural areas, poverty was pervasive and the hospitals were more like clinics.
