Parkland Health Center is pleased to announce the construction of a new cancer center facility in Farmington. This state-of-the-art, 6,500 square-foot treatment facility is located on the fourth floor of the medical office building on Parkland’s Farmington campus. The cancer center will move from its current location in Bonne Terre to its new Farmington location in July 2019.
Since 1995, Parkland Cancer Center has partnered with Missouri Baptist Medical Center, with four board-certified oncologists providing care to our patients. A fifth oncologist, Dr. Melissa Rooney, joined the cancer center staff in 2018.
“A lot of thought and planning has gone into the development of the new cancer center in Farmington,” said Dr. Rooney. “I am happy to be able to provide state-of-the-art care in a new facility that has been specifically crafted to enhance patients’ and family members’ experiences.”
In addition to the five oncologists, the cancer center team also includes local oncology and infusion-certified nurses, as well as a pharmacist, chaplain and social worker. The team offers the same medical oncology, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and clinical trials that are offered at Missouri Baptist.
Oncology services are currently located on the first floor of Parkland’s Bonne Terre facility, with infusion therapy and physician clinics located on the second floor. This relocation to the fourth floor of the medical office building will allow oncology, infusion therapy and the physician clinics to be housed together, making treatment and physician visits more convenient for patients.
Parkland Health Center will continue to operate its 24/7 fully staffed emergency department, inpatient services and sleep disorder center at the Bonne Terre location. Options to fill the space vacated by the cancer center move are being explored.
Parkland Cancer Center provides diagnostics and primary cancer treatment including medical oncology, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, access to clinical trials, genetic testing and radiation oncology referrals as well as continuous follow-up, consultations and second opinions for cancer and blood disorder management.
