SSM Health Cancer Care center to open in Maryville in June

A new Cancer Care program is coming to northwest Missouri. SSM Health St. Francis and SSM Medical group will open SSM Health Cancer Care in June.

Hospital President Mike Baumgartner made the announcement last night during a social event for today's St. Francis Golf Classic. Baumgartner says the new cancer unit will be beneficial for patients in northwest Missouri and southwest Iowa.

Baumgartner says the generosity of residents of the region helped make the Cancer Unit a reality.

SSM Health St. Francis has recruited oncologist Dr. Rolando Breier to head up the Cancer Care unit which includes a new chemotherapy and infusion center. Dr. Breier is scheduled to see his first patient in Maryville on June 12.
