SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico is opening a health care clinic for public employees, a move that has won Republican Gov. Susana Martinez a few points with a union she’s usually at odds with.

The New Mexican reports ( ) that Martinez announced Wednesday that the Stay Well Health Clinic is opening in Santa Fe and will provide primary care, urgent care and occupational health services without the long wait usually encountered at such clinics.

American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees spokesman Miles Conway says employees will take advantage of the clinic’s convenient location and hours. He said in an interview that the clinic is “being received as very promising.”

Martinez says the clinic’s preventative care will save about $3.5 million annually in taxpayer money.
