New cancer treatment center opens on Navajo Nation

New Mexico

NAVAJO NATION (KRQE) – A new cancer treatment center is now open on the Navajo Nation.

The Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation in northeastern Arizona recently welcomed its first patient. It gets funding through hospital profits, grants, and donations.

The hospital’s chief executive says it’s the first of its kind on a Native American reservation. The hope is, it will cut down on travel time for patients.
