Visiting

West St. Louis County

Our facility on the campus of Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital in Creve Coeur, Mo., makes it easy for patients to receive world-class cancer care close to home. Centrally located in the St. Louis region, the west county satellite is a convenient choice for patients and their families. We offer a quiet, peaceful space where patients can receive treatment, see their physicians, and undergo necessary testing without the added stress of a long drive into the city.

The Siteman Cancer Center has operated a facility on the campus of Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital in Creve Coeur, Mo., since 2001. In July 2008, the facility moved to a new location in Medical Office Building 2.

The board-certified medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons who staff our west county building also practice at Siteman’s main campus in St. Louis and collaborate regularly with other Siteman and Washington University Physicians. In addition, many Siteman surgeons and specialists practice in other offices on the campus of Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, making it possible to receive comprehensive care without traveling to a different location.

Our west county staff also includes registered nurses with specialized training in caring for cancer patients. A research coordinator is available to talk with patients about possible participation in clinical trials, which provide access to new medications and treatments not available at most cancer centers.

Patients who come to our west county location can also take advantage of a wide range of support services and therapies aimed at helping them feel their best as they undergo treatment for cancer. Some of our programs include Therapeutic Horticulture with the Missouri Botanical Gardens, Touch Therapy with therapy dogs, and gentle yoga. We also have trained social workers on staff who can help patients with specific problems at home or at work that might arise during treatment.

Construction

We’re currently remodeling some areas of the cancer center at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital. All patients will still be able to receive their treatments, but we ask that you please bear with us as we improve the facility.

  • The waiting area on the right-hand side as you enter is being redone with an estimated completion date of mid-July.
  • We are also adding exam rooms and more areas for our dietician and other staff members. The estimated completion is mid-August.
  • The pharmacy is estimated to be completed mid-September.
  • All changes should be completed by late November or possibly earlier. Upon completion, there will be additional infusion chairs, allowing more patients to receive treatment.

Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital is also undergoing construction to create a healing environment that is innovative, modern and efficient.  The current hospital and all medical office buildings on campus are fully operational during this time.  The replacement hospital is scheduled to open in 2019.  Thank you in advance for your patience as we continue to enhance the excellent patient care for which we are known.  For more information about the project, visit BJCConstruction.org/BJWCH.
