The CRC has been providing outreach and assistance to cancer patients since February 2000. There are more than 350 visits to the CRC annually for newly diagnosed cancer patients.

The 15 Unit Merriner Cottages provide temporary housing to medically underserved and underinsured cancer patients in the Nevada counties of Carson City, Churchill, Douglas, Lyon, Pershing, Story and Washoe.

Treatment periods for patients qualified to stay in the Cottages typically range from three to eight weeks. The estimated hard costs of an overnight stay in the Cottages is 80, with an average stay costing 1,800 per patient.
