University of New Mexico Hospital (UNMH) officials are warning local residents not to call 877-725-2552, the former nurse advice line for UNMH. The line was disconnected a year ago and hospital staff recently became aware that scammers have bought the number and are impersonating hospital employees. The operators of this line are not associated with UNMH, Sandoval Regional Medical Center, UNM Medical Group, the university or our healthcare partners.
Patients seeking medical advice should call 877-925-6877.
A patient reported that the scammers promised him a $200 gift card, all the patient needed to do was provide a credit card for shipping costs. Nurses providing advice on behalf of UNMH would never ask for a patient’s credit card information.
