The Laguna Sanatorium was established in 1911 at Laguna, New Mexico to treat Indians with tuberculosis. From 1911 through July 1929, it also treated general patients. It operated under the supervision of Pueblo Day Schools, the Pueblo Agency, and the Southern Pueblos Agency until 1924. From 1924 to 1933, it was independent. It closed in 1933.


At least some of the records of this health facility are at the Rocky Mountain Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Denver, including three registers of patients treated, 1926-1930. Name, age, degree of Indian blood, occupation, and other information is recorded for each person treated.
