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.
