My wife has been a patient at the center since before it opened. She saw Dr. Rasila at the Ikard Cancer Center before the UNM Center officially opened.

We we told about this change almost two months ago. I'm not sure why everyone is so surprised, unless it is simply the Sun News that was surprised.

The UNM Cancer Center is a true asset to Las Cruces and I'm certain UNM will provide excellent service in the interim.

It might be better to go to Tucson; The University of Tucson has a very well respected cancer unit. A very dear friend from Las Cruces traveled to Houston Strips Hospital,and is considered very good. I know for my own family, we traveled 270 miles R/T for my late uncle to UCD = University California Davis; The hospital and staff were great, my uncle lived for eleven more years, and he did not die of cancer ! What Do You Think will happend with: OBAMA CARE ? Even Ted Kennedy went to North Carolina for his care and treatment for his cancer ! We need to STILL HAVE A CHOICE !

Its not the doctors. We have good doctors and nurses. We seem to have a shortage because of
the hospitals. MMC has had a bad reputation
every since I have lived here the past ten
years. They need new board of directors and
they need an all new management staff. They
need outsiders to come in and shape MMC up.
The human Relation department, accounting,
all those the labs. All these heads need to
be replaced and Make it a better place for the
good doctors, and nurses we have, or they will
all be leaving soon also.
