New Heart was created in 1972 by Dr. Richard Lueker and his colleagues as a way to explore the concept that health cannot be delivered through a prescription drug or an operation alone. Health depends not just on fixing the plumbing, but also on improving the processes that occur in our bodies at the physical, mental and emotional levels.

Recognizing that primary prevention is an important part of keeping society healthy, New Heart offers a medical fitness center open to anyone interested in a healthy lifestyle along with caregivers of heart patients.  New Heart also participates in the Medicare-funded Silver Sneakers program. And as part of its continuing mission, New Heart has conducted a number of community outreach projects aimed at reducing the impact of heart disease in underserved children and minorities.

In July of 2016 the New Heart Center for Fitness and Wellness partnered with the New Mexico Heart Institute Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the cardiovascular health of all New Mexicans through education, heart health and wellness programs and research. Under the supervision of Dr. Barry Ramo, New Heart now helps thousands of patients survive and thrive with heart health in mind.
