New West County Facility
The interior of Siteman's new west county facility features enhanced public spaces.
July 28, 2008 – The Siteman Cancer Center has opened a new facility on the campus of Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital. In addition to more public and treatment space, the facility offers an expanded medical oncology staff, and next year, radiation oncology services will be available for the first time.
Siteman has operated a facility near the hospital campus in Creve Coeur, Mo., since 2001. The new location in Medical Office Building 2 offers 14 exam rooms and 28 infusion chairs, compared to 5 exam rooms and 14 infusion chairs in the old facility. Boone Goodgame, MD, who specializes in lung cancer, has joined the existing staff of Washington University medical oncologists. The facility also offers on-site lab testing, access to clinical trials, and support and education programs.
In March 2009, patients will be able to receive radiation therapy at the new facility, following the installation of a linear accelerator capable of delivering image-guided therapy and a new CT scanner for treatment planning. Imran Zoberi, MD, assistant professor at Washington University, has been named medical director of radiation oncology at the facility.
Siteman surgeons who specialize in treating gastrointestinal, thoracic, urological and other cancers will continue to see patients in existing offices on the hospital campus, making it possible to receive comprehensive services in one location.
