It's news no one wants to hear. But if cancer should touch you or a loved one, you’ll want the very latest in treatment options, the best trained professionals including a team of top doctors, and the most advanced cancer-fighting technology -- all in a comfortable setting.
Our 35,000-sq. ft. Cancer Center combines these critical components in a location designed by doctors, nurses and cancer patients. That’s because decades of experience have taught us that comfort and compassion are just as important as the science of medicine. Therefore, our comprehensive treatment planning includes equal measures of both.

The Cancer Center at Missouri Baptist is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), which allows patients and physicians to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials for cancer prevention and treatment while in their local communities. There are only 66 CCOPs currently funded across the nation. This means that through the Heartland Cancer Research Program, led by our oncologists, we can offer the latest cancer research trials to our patients.
By participating in clinical research studies, our patients benefit from the development of new drugs and treatments, and help build upon a legacy that will benefit future cancer patients.
Plus, our cancer program is accredited by the American College of Surgeons and the Joint Commission.
Recognized as one of the region’s outstanding cancer programs, our Cancer Center is organized around these basic principles:
Our Cancer Center also offers a Healing Garden where patients may go to find a peaceful retreat or, when possible, receive treatments by the side of our reflecting pool. Our infusion areas are equipped with wireless internet for patients and loved ones. And, our Cancer Support Center is there to answer any questions to help you and your family throughout this journey.
