Presbyterian Cancer Care

Cancer is tough. We're tougher.

Dedicated to improving the health of our community, Presbyterian Cancer Care is New Mexico's resource for compassionate, patient-centered cancer care. We are a certified member of MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a program supported by MD Anderson Cancer Center. This affiliation provides our medical oncologists and surgeons with access to a wide range of multidisciplinary care resources, including disease-specific and evidence-based guidelines, treatment plans and best practices developed by MD Anderson. It also means our oncologists and surgeons have the opportunity to present especially rare or complex cancer cases and seek consultation with MD Anderson’s experts.

For more information about Cancer Care's supportive rehabilitation services and Nurse Navigators who mentor patients at the time of initial diagnosis and treatment, contact us. 

Clinical Research Trials

Clinical trials are part of clinical research and at the heart of all medical advances, they look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat cancer. Treatments might be new drugs, new combinations of drugs, or new ways to use existing treatments. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. The goal of clinical research trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Presbyterian Cancer Care is committed to providing cancer patients across New Mexico with the best treatment options offered through clinical research studies.

We are a member of the New Mexico Cancer Care Alliance, which was formed in 2002 to increase access for New Mexicans to clinical trials. We have a dedicated clinical research staff to assure the safety and care of patients participating in clinical trials.

Participation in a clinical trial is a personal decision you make with your doctor. If you have questions about clinical trials, please ask your doctor.
