I am incredibly proud of our Cancer Program team who are providing this excellent care for our community. MMC’s Cancer Program works in partnership with the University of New Mexico Cancer Center (UNMCC), one of the top cancer centers in the nation. With this partnership, our patients in southern New Mexico are able to receive UNMCC advanced cancer care protocols from UNMCC physicians, while they stay right here at home.

Las Cruces (August 6, 2014)--The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) has granted Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation to Memorial Medical Center and the Memorial Medical Center Cancer Program(MMC Cancer Program). To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed 34 CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process, and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care. Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation is only awarded to a facility that exceeds standard equirements at the time of its triennial survey.

Medical Staff, Board of Trustees and Community Leaders:

Introductory Remarks

The first eight months of my CEO tenure at MMC have flown by. I am more excited than ever about what lies ahead for our wonderful hospital, the progress that we have made and our plans for the future.  Special thanks go out to my predecessor, Paul Herzog, who performed magnificently during his 11-year tenure as CEO of MMC.  His professionalism, strict adherence to quality standards, community loyalty, and focus on positioning MMC for great success is a lasting legacy.

I have greatly appreciated the support of our nearly 1,200 employees, Medical Staff, Board of Trustees, and the wonderful partnerships with leaders of the communities we serve. Our plans are clear and unwavering.  We will continue to develop MMC as a major regional referral center composed of exceptional physicians, leaders, employees and valued partners dedicated to the delivery of high quality patient care.

I have, and will continue to make it a point to meet physicians in their offices and get their advice on all things having to do with MMC.  I firmly believe that MMC is a “doctor’s workshop”.  MMC’s leadership team is dedicated to keeping you informed on our progress as we develop new patient care services, enhancements to existing services, physician recruitment to Las Cruces and surrounding communities, and much more.  You will receive CEO updates at least monthly.

So, let’s get to the progress that is being made at MMC!
