Significance: The Taos Indian Health Center was constructed by the Department of the Interior, Office of Indian Affairs, and opened as a hospital in the late 1920s to serve the Pueblo of Taos and Picuris Pueblo. The construction of a hospital on Indian land represented a change in federal Indian health care policy by locating health care facilities on the reservation, thus bringing direct patient care to the people being served. The building itself is architecturally significant for its Pueblo-Spanish styling, departing from the federal government's normal building style for this period, and blending with the Pueblo's traditional building style.
