Cancer Center: Oncology & Infusion
Our new Oncology/Infusion Center was modeled from an award-winning design to provide a comfortable atmosphere for both the patient and family. Each of our eight treatment areas creates a sense of privacy for the patient with the ability to socialize with other patients. There are two private treatment rooms available for patients who prefer privacy. Within each treatment station, there is a flat screen television, a bench and a chair for family, a closet to store personal belongings and a reclining chair for the patient. A kitchenette is available with a microwave, refrigerator, ice/water machine and coffee for our patients. A wall of windows lets in natural light and offers a view of our Healing Garden. Our board-certified oncologist from St. Louis is Jason Li, MD. Our oncology team is committed to providing compassionate and skilled care to every patient at every visit.
The Cardiopulmonary Department provides a full continuum of care, including prevention and wellness programs, cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation. The full range of diagnostic therapies available includes noninvasive techniques, such as 4-D echocardiography ultrasound, stress echocardiography and 24-hour holter monitor services, as well as invasive techniques, such as nuclear stress testing.
