BJC and Saint Luke’s Officially Combine as BJC Health System

Cancer

If you or a loved one needs cancer screening — or receives a cancer diagnosis — where you go matters. Our nationally recognized cancer prevention and treatment teams provide the highest quality care, at several convenient locations. Here, you’ll find the compassionate care and support you deserve during this challenging time.

Why choose us for cancer care?

BJC HealthCare works with Washington University physicians, BJC Medical Group, and providers across the region to deliver extraordinary care. Siteman Cancer Center and the Missouri Baptist Cancer Center are two programs accessible through BJC HealthCare. After a cancer diagnosis, deciding where to seek treatment can be an overwhelming decision. We help make it easier by offering world-class care that’s close to home.

Our nationally recognized cancer experts provide fast, accurate diagnosis followed by the most advanced treatments available. And our compassionate support services provide help to you and your family every step of the way.

When you come to us for cancer care, you’ll find:

  • Expert team: Our cancer specialists are among the best in the nation. Our highly trained team includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons. All are board-certified with years of expertise in their specialties. The cancer team also includes specially trained oncology nurses who provide expert and compassionate care.
  • Advanced treatment options: We offer a full range of innovative treatments for all types of cancer. From minimally invasive surgical techniques to leading-edge immunotherapy treatments, we can help you effectively fight cancer.
  • Access to clinical trials: Siteman Cancer Center and Washington University School of Medicine provide access to numerous clinical trials. These trials give you the opportunity to receive new medications and treatments not yet available at other cancer centers.
  • Comprehensive cancer screening and prevention: The only good cancer is the one you don’t get. We offer comprehensive cancer screening programs, including genetic testing, to help keep you and your family healthy.
  • Convenient care: Coordinating appointments with multiple doctors and receiving frequent, ongoing treatments can be exhausting. We help make navigating cancer care easier by offering convenient access to services close to home.
  • Support for you and your family: While our expert oncologists treat cancer, our compassionate cancer support services team focuses on all your other needs. We offer services including nutritional counseling, emotional support, art and music therapy, massage therapy and more. These are available to help support you and your family throughout cancer treatment and beyond.
