The UNM Cancer Center provides chemotherapy treatment in the infusion suite, located on the fourth floor of our clinic.
Our oncology nurses are experts in cancer care. They specialize in giving chemotherapy. The oncology nursing team provides support to patients and their families and teaches them about chemotherapy, its safety and its side effects.
My patients become my family. I genuinely care about how they are feeling and make sure we are doing all we can to help them through this time in their life. I want to see my patients living it up when they leave our facility.
