    I have long been proud of the Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center for the many services it offers to our local community, including screening, diagnosis and treatment for a number of conditions. Recently, the Cancer Center has grown, with several Board Certified Medical Oncologists and Hematologists establishing offices in the Lucy Curci Cancer Center locations on the main campus and across the street in the Rancho Mirage Professional Plaza. These physicians join the specialists who were already housed in the Eisenhower Schnitzer/ Novak Breast Center and Eisenhower Bighorn Radiation Oncology Center.

    In coming months, oncology services at the Eisenhower George and Julia Argyros Health Center in La Quinta will expand to include infusion services adjacent to the existing radiation oncology department and downstairs from the breast center. Currently, a national search is underway for a medical director of the Cancer Center. Our nationally accredited cancer center truly offers a robust program of cancer services, education and support for our community. click for more
