Construction Starts on New Siteman Cancer Center
Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital have broken ground on the new Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center location in south St. Louis County.
With completion slated for early 2013, the 37,000-square-foot Siteman Cancer Center-South County will be located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Interstate 55 and Butler Hill Road. The center will provide conveniently located, comprehensive outpatient cancer care for patients living in south St. Louis County and the surrounding area. Services will include initial consultations, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and clinical trials, and surgeons will provide consultations.

The cost of the facility currently is estimated to be $27.5 million. BSA LifeStructures is the architecture and engineering firm; Paric Construction will manage the construction. Bruce Roth, MD, will be the director of medical oncology at the center, and Parag Parikh, MD, will serve as director of radiation oncology.
“We are looking forward to providing more convenient care to our many patients in the south St. Louis County area,” says Timothy Eberlein, MD, Siteman director.
“We want patients from the area to be able to see their physicians and receive treatment closer to their homes and families.”
