Siteman Cancer Center outpatient facility

The newest Siteman Cancer Center outpatient facility under construction in North St. Louis County on the campus of Northwest Healthcare in Florissant, Mo. is expected to open in December 2019. The $26.3 project of Siteman, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University will include state of the art technology, including a new linear accelerator to deliver radiation therapy and a computed tomography or CT scanner, which combines multiple x-ray images to better identify tumor positioning.

PECaD, the Program for Elimination of Cancer Disparities and Siteman Cancer Center, will hold a community town hall at the Florissant Valley Branch of the St. Louis County Library on Monday, June 10 at 9 a.m. to discuss the new Siteman outpatient center under construction in Florissant, and community needs for cancer prevention and treatment.

“The topics discussed at the town halls are largely determined by the community members who attend, as it is their concerns we’re aiming to address,” a PECaD spokesman stated. “The Siteman mammography van will also be at the event on June 10, and attendees can book an appointment.” Participants can call 314-747-7222 or 800-600-3606 in advance to make an appointment.

At the PECaD town hall on May 6 held at the Rock Road Branch of the St. Louis County Library in St. Ann, topics included the design and treatment capabilities of the new Siteman campus under construction on the Northwest Healthcare campus in Florissant, along with the time frame to move Siteman to that location from the Christian Hospital site. The North County Siteman is expected to open in December. It also was discussed how the Northwest site is the better location for Siteman for persons using public transportation.
