An employee of Alta Vista Regional Hospital has sued his employer over what he calls a pattern of bias against northern New Mexican Hispanics.
Carlos Coca, who has held a number of supervisory positions at the hospital over the years, filed the lawsuit earlier this month in state District Court.
His attorney, Dennis Montoya of Albuquerque, states in the lawsuit that Coca has been a target of discrimination in the years since Tennessee-based Community Health Systems Corp. bought the formerly nonprofit hospital in 2000.
