Strength behind every patient.
Compassion in everything we do.

It's news no one wants to hear. But if cancer should touch you or a loved one, you’ll want the very latest in treatment options, the best trained professionals including a team of top doctors, and the most advanced cancer-fighting technology -- all in a comfortable setting.

Our 35,000-sq. ft. Cancer Center combines these critical components in a location designed by doctors, nurses and cancer patients. That’s because decades of experience have taught us that comfort and compassion are just as important as the science of medicine. Therefore, our comprehensive treatment planning includes equal measures of both.

Cancer Registry Report

The Cancer Registry is known for its substantial supportive role in the Missouri Baptist Medical Center’s Cancer Program. The Registry works with physicians, administrators, healthcare providers and planners to provide support for cancer program development, to ensure compliance to regulatory reporting requirements and standards, and to serve as a primary resource for cancer information and statistical information. A major function of the Registry is to record and analyze relevant patient data to include cancer diagnosis and treatment. The Registry also ensures compliance with the Commission on Cancer (CoC) standards, which ensures that Missouri Baptist provides the most comprehensive and patient centered cancer care for our patients.

The registry currently has almost 30,000 cancer patients entered into the database, representing individuals who were diagnosed and treated at Missouri Baptist Medical Center since its reference date in 2002. The Registry provides lifetime follow up on all of these patients. The information collected in follow up ensures continuous medical surveillance of the patient and enables monitoring of treatment efficacy and survival.

In addition to the primary functions of data collection relevant to each cancer patient we treat, the Registry is involved in analyzing cancer data for the purpose of education, research, quality of care and outcomes measurement. This data is submitted to the state and the National Cancer Database. Aggregate data can be used as a clinical surveillance mechanism in review of patterns of care, and outcomes and survival, with the ultimate goals being cancer prevention and quality treatment delivery.

Physicians and other healthcare professionals are encouraged to utilize the data collected by the Cancer Registry.
