Your Guide to Care

As the Official Cancer Center of New Mexico, we are dedicated to providing outstanding cancer care to all New Mexicans right here in our home state. Last year, we provided care to about 60 percent of adults and almost all of the children in New Mexico diagnosed with cancer — more than 10,000 people from every county in the state. The University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center is honored to play an important role in delivering the compassionate, cutting-edge cancer treatments New Mexicans deserve. We know first-hand how difficult a cancer diagnosis can be. We are deeply committed to providing you with the best possible care.

In this Patient Guide, you will find information related to your cancer treatment, the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center team, our support services and cancer-focused community resources. We revise and update this Patient Guide every year. We have designed it to introduce you to the UNM Cancer Center. Our entire staff is here to help and serve you.

We provide a Patient Guide to all new patients. Our Patient Guide is also available at the UNM Cancer Center; please ask any of our staff for a free copy.

If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
