At NMCC, we aggressively manage cancer and the side effects of the disease and treatment to help our patients feel better so they can spend more time at home. This method of treatment is called a "medical home," and it's been so successful that we've 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.
