DRMC Comprehensive Cancer Center Opens in La Quinta

Desert Regional Medical Center (DRMC) has opened a satellite location in La Quinta for its Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC). The new facility brings CCC’s highly regarded practice of quality conventional care and complementary modalities to residents of the East Valley.

“We are pleased to bring our unique brand of hi-tech and hi-touch to our families in the eastern end of the valley,” said Karolee Sowle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Desert Regional Medical Center.

CCC-La Quinta will offer vital medical oncology services and breast cancer screenings including digital mammography services, physician consultation and chemotherapy. Complementary therapies such as nutritional counseling and acupuncture will also be offered by either DRMC’s in-house practitioners or through local practitioners screened and selected by CCC. The facility will also have its own lab and pharmacy.

“Our goal is to create a healing environment and one that fosters a positive experience by patients, staff and family members,” said Teresa Whipple, executive director of the Comprehensive Cancer Center. “The center’s layout was carefully designed for the comfort and well-being of the patient.”

CCC will join two other DRMC programs, the Institute of Clinical Orthopedics and Neurosciences (ICON) and La Quinta Imaging Center at the La Quinta Medical Center on Caleo Bay off Washington. For more information visit,
