Dr. Van Amburg Letter: 2011
The multi-disciplinary team at The Center for Cancer Care at St. Luke's Hospital is pleased to present our annual report, which features a statistical overview of the our Cancer Registry data and also provides insight to the various services we provide. We are also proud to be an approved Commission on Cancer (CoC) cancer program.

This is a very exciting and momentous time for us. We have embarked on a 30,000 square feet, $6.2 million renovation and expansion of our current Center which will enhance the way we are able to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients and their family members. This initiative was conceived through countless hours of planning, collaboration and design and reflects the devotion we share towards finding new and innovative ways to diagnose, treat and prevent cancer.

The first phase of the renovation is currently underway, with a new Infusion Center now complete. By incorporating large windows, patients and loved ones will be able to view the new Healing Garden and its beautiful trees and landscaping. The design also allows for natural light to fill the infusion stations and also offers ample room for family and friends to remain with the patient while they receive treatment.

We are excited about the Center improvements. Some highlights of the new Center when completed include:
  • Better access for patients and their families
  • Improved patient registration process
  • New infusion area offering the latest in comfort and technology
  • New and expanded medical oncology office space
  • Remodeled dressing and waiting areas in the Radiation Oncology Department
  • Electronic Medical Record (EMR) to facilitate coordination of patient care between healthcare providers
  • Healing Garden to promote healing and reduce stress
  • Warm and inviting patient environment
  • New resource library
  • New multi-purpose room for support groups and other activities
  • New laboratory draw area
We hope you enjoy our report and, at the same time, learn more about the extent of services available for the St. Louis community and the surrounding region.
