Welcome to the Memorial Hermann Cancer Journal. This publication focuses on Memorial Hermann’s cancer network and our affiliated cancer providers; prevention, treatment and research programs; patient outcomes; survivorship; and research initiatives that provide the continuum of cancer care for patients.

With more than 50 cancer care access points throughout Greater Houston, Memorial Hermann’s cancer network is helping patients navigate their cancer journey by caring for their physical, emotional and spiritual needs in their own community.

Each year, over 6,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients choose Memorial Hermann for cancer treatment, and through affiliated providers, research, social workers, chaplaincy, supportive care and nurse navigation teams, we’re able to provide them with access to the most advanced cancer treatment services and technology, ultimately improving patient outcomes.

Through a multidisciplinary team approach, patients are offered personalized treatment plans – giving them a timely answer for their cancer.

Thank you for taking the time to engage in the Memorial Hermann Cancer Journal. We hope you enjoy reading about Memorial Hermann’s efforts to advance health and how Memorial Hermann enables patients with everything they need to fight their battle against cancer.
