The Siteman Cancer Center-South County, Interstate 55 and Butler Hill Road, will open Jan. 7.

The Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine will begin seeing patients Monday, Jan. 7, at its newest outpatient location in south county.

Located at Interstate 55 and Butler Hill Road, the Siteman Cancer Center-South County offers access to the same advanced treatments, including more than 240 clinical trials, and technology available at Siteman’s main location at Washington University Medical Center.

“Treatment at a top 10 U.S. cancer center just got easier for hundreds of thousands of area residents,” Dr. Timothy Eberlein, Siteman’s director, stated in a news release. “Along with convenience, patients at our south county location will benefit from the world-class cancer care and outstanding research of our Washington University physicians.”

Multidisciplinary care provided by radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and surgeons will allow patients to see as many as three physicians in one trip. This team approach also means a patient’s treatment plan can be determined in one visit, according to the release.

Barnes-Jewish Hospital installed a linear accelerator at the new facility to provide state-of-the-art radiation therapy, and Washington University will operate an infusion center for chemotherapy. The 16-acre site includes parking close to the building and green space for patients and their families to enjoy. Future plans include a healing garden.

Putting the patients’ experience first, planners at Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital defined several guiding values that the designers kept in mind for the new building, including promoting trust, instilling calm, conveying respect, ensuring quality and offering inspiration, the release stated.

Dr. Bruce J. Roth, professor of medicine, is director of medical oncology at the new location, and Dr. Parag J. Parikh, assistant professor of radiation oncology, is director of radiation oncology.

BSA LifeStructures was the architecture and engineering firm for the $27.5 million project. Paric Construction managed construction of the new 37,000-square-foot facility.

The Siteman Cancer Center-South County’s address is 5225 Midamerica Plaza. For more information about the new location, visit
