Medical Staff, Board of Trustees and Community Leaders:
Many positive changes are taking place at Memorial Medical Center with a focus on quality and better service for our patients and physicians. So far in 2014, we achieved Commission on Cancer (CoC) Accreditation in our Cancer Program, as we continue our partnership with UNM Cancer Center, one of the top cancer care centers in the nation. We acquired the free-standing imaging center, and leased the cancer center facility on Roadrunner Pkwy to make healthcare more convenient for our patients. MMC now has a new Anesthesia group and Emergency Department (ED) group to improve efficiency and quality of care. Very soon, we will be opening the only free-standing Wound Care and Limb Preservation Center in southern New Mexico, next to our HealthPlex. I am excited about the changes happening at MMC and the far-reaching benefits they bring to our patients, physicians and community as a whole.
