With 59 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 expert 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 their cancer team approach, patients are offered personalized treatment plans – giving them a timely answer for their cancer.
