M.D. Anderson to open satellite facility in Clear LakeGet today's rates from 4 lenders.
The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center is planning to open an onsite radiation treatment satellite facility at Christus St. John Hospital in Clear Lake.
The facility is slated to open this fall.
"We wanted the ability to serve the Bay Area community that might not be willing or able to come to the Texas Medical Center for daily radiation treatments," says Dr. James Cox, professor and head of the division of radiation oncology at M.D. Anderson. "... Opening this satellite center allows us to reach out and offer the best possible care to a wider range of patients closer to home."
The new treatment center will be incorporated into Christus St. John's recent multimillion-dollar expansion project and will be staffed by M.D. Anderson employees, who are trained and receive professional development from the main campus.
This not the first satellite center for M.D. Anderson. The institution also has remote facilities in Bellaire, The Woodlands, Fort Bend and Lake Jackson, according to a spokeswoman. This will be the first M.D. Anderson facility to serve the Bay Area/Galveston communities.
