SSM Cancer Care at St. Clare, a service of St. Mary’s Health Center, has been recognized by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer for providing a comprehensive program designed to treat the entire person, including physical, emotional and spiritual needs, as well as the needs of patients’ loved ones.
A wide range of specialists are here to serve you – radiologists, hematologists, radiation and medical oncologists, pulmonologists, and breast and thoracic surgeons, among others -- offering a collective experience that fosters exceptional health care to patients. Our expert physicians, nurses and oncology professionals will become your advocates throughout the treatment process.
Our brand-new facility provides some of the latest breakthrough technology and treatments, such as Cyberknife and prostate brachytherapy.
At St. Clare, all services, such as medical oncology, infusion and radiation oncology, are offered within the same area. This integrated structure is more convenient for patients and also enables SSM Cancer Care to approach the patient’s needs from a team perspective. SSM Cancer Care at St. Clare is a one-stop location for advanced diagnostic and treatment options (chemotherapy, radiation therapy and lab tests).
Nurse practitioners provide education, as well as manage our cancer support group -- where SSM continues the healing process beyond the clinical care from physicians and staff. There is also a cancer resource library for the patients.
In addition, we offer:
- Spiritual support through Pastoral Care
- Nutrition guidance
- Pain management
- Transportation assistance
St. Clare was built to make being in a hospital feel less like “being in a hospital.” SSM Cancer Care at St. Clare is located on the Garden Level of the St. Francis Building. Our full-service infusion center is in a comfortable, restful setting and patients even can opt to have treatments outside in our adjacent beautiful Arbor Courtyard.
