Medical Advisory Team (MAT)

On March 11, 2020, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham declared a Public Health Emergency in NM and invoked the All Hazards Emergency Management Act by directing all cabinets, departments and agencies to comply with the directives of the declaration and the further instructions of the Department of Health (DOH). As part of the response, the DOH launched the Medical Advisory Team (MAT), which is building a statewide delivery system to effectively manage the surge in COVID-19 cases and resources and assets as they become scarce.

The MAT consists of state officials, healthcare providers, and community members throughout NM, who are tasked with developing responding to three questions:

How do we best use existing capacity and resources?


How do we create more capacity and resources?


How do we allocate capacity and resources when they become scarce?

The Medical Advisory Team supports community partners with the ability to quickly source and/or make needed medical supplies (e.g. face shields, gowns, ventilators, masks, and other products as needed) to support the State of New Mexico’s COVID-19 response.
