Valencia County is one step closer to getting a hospital. 

Valencia County Commissioners approved a contract during a meeting last week with Lovelace Health System to build and operate a hospital. 

The county has been collecting taxpayers dollars for years to do it, but Los Lunas and Belen have been in a fight over who should get it. 

As part of the contract, Lovelace will pick a location for the hospital. 

KRQE News 13 reached out to Lovelace to see if it has a time frame moving forward. 

A spokesperson says they are unable to provide further information.
