The UNM Cancer Center clinic building houses all of our outpatient facilities. We opened this $100 million 206,000 square foot facility in 2009 and completed full build-out in 2016. Our clinic includes extra-large exam rooms, some outpatient surgical suites, a bone marrow and stem cell transplant bay, several radiation vaults, and the chemotherapy infusion suite.
As a resource for our entire state, the UNM Cancer Center is committed to bringing world class cancer care to all New Mexicans. We have built, and continue to build, a statewide cancer care network through collaborative clinical programs. We form partnerships with many diverse communities, including Native American, Spanish-speaking and rural communities, to develop culturally sensitive cancer materials. And we are partners in the New Mexico Cancer Care Alliance, which brings cancer clinical trials access to all New Mexicans.

Our multidisciplinary team is in constant contact, and you can be assured that your physician will oversee every aspect of your care.
