About the Clinic

Our clinic building was designed around the idea of healing the whole person. It features serene gardens, sunlight, natural materials and colors, and alcoves for local artists’ work that create a warm welcoming space in which to go through your cancer journey.

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, 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.

I try to guide our patient’s experience in their cancer journey to make it as positive as possible. I think when you go through cancer treatment as a patient, to be able to be treated with compassion and not just as another diagnosis, is a gift. That’s what I hope I provide. – Amy Gundelach, RN, MSN, OCN, Gyn Oncology Nurse Navigator
