At NMCC, we aggressively manage cancer and the side effects of the disease and treatment to help patients feel better so they spend more time at home. This method of treatment is called a "medical home," and we're so successful at it that our CEO Dr. Barbara McAneny received a grant to duplicate the process at six clinics across the country. As part of the grant, we offer treatment until 8 p.m. during the week and from 1 to 4 p.m. on weekends so our patients don't seek care in the ER. By extending our hours, we keep patients out of the hospital and at home where they're happy and comfortable.

In the March 2014 issue of Albuquerque the Magazine, NMCC’s oncology team was voted best in the city by their peers. NMCC has consistently been ranked top over the years by their fellow doctors, so if you or someone you love is facing cancer, trust the team that other doctors continually rank the best.
