Siteman Cancer Center
The Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine is an international leader in cancer treatment, research, prevention, education and community outreach. It is the only cancer center in Missouri and within a 240-mile radius of St. Louis to hold the prestigious Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the National Cancer Institute and membership in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. U.S.News & World Report consistently ranks the cancer center among the best in the nation.
Siteman offers the expertise of more than 350 Washington University research scientists and physicians who provide care for more than 8,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients each year. A full range of advanced diagnostic and treatment services are available for patients with all types of cancer, many of them provided in the Center for Advanced Medicine, a state-of-the-art outpatient facility that opened on the Barnes-Jewish Hospital campus in 2001.
Siteman also offers patients access to support services throughout their care. Satellite facilities are conveniently located near the campus of Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital in Creve Coeur, at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital in St. Charles County, and in South St. Louis County.
Scientists and physicians affiliated with Siteman hold more than $165 million in annual cancer research and related training grants. The results of basic laboratory research are rapidly incorporated into treatment advances. This process is enhanced by patient access to more than 250 therapeutic clinical studies, including many collaborative efforts with other leading cancer centers throughout the country.
In addition to treatment and research programs, Siteman pursues an active outreach program of cancer screening and education that involves tens of thousands of individuals annually throughout the St. Louis region.
