May 23, 2018

We are proud of the fact that Memorial has the most comprehensive cancer program in southern New Mexico, right here in Las Cruces. When faced with a cancer diagnosis, patients don’t have to leave home to receive the highest standard of cancer care. Memorial Cancer Center has provided care for more than 50,000 patients in our region for more than 20 years. We recently completed a year-long remodel and expansion with more than 25,000 square feet dedicated solely to cancer care. As an American College of Surgeons (ACoS) Commission on Cancer (CoC) Accredited cancer program (the only one in southern New Mexico) our highly experienced team of Medical Oncologists and Radiation Oncologists follow the same care protocols as other ACoS accredited cancer programs around the nation. Memorial Cancer Center is an affiliate of UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center which is among the top 4% of approximately 1,500 cancer centers in the United States. You are the company you keep. Memorial’s Radiation Oncology Center is the only program in the region, including El Paso, that has earned the American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation for exceptional staff, equipment, treatment-planning and records, as well as patient safety. With the recent upgrade on our Tomography equipment and the addition of a state-of-the art $4 million Linear Accelerator, radiation treatments are exceptionally accurate and efficient.
