The Missouri Baptist Difference
Missouri Baptist Cancer Center offers an exceptional medical program. In 2005, Missouri Baptist Cancer Center and its cancer specialists came together to form the Heartland Cancer Research and received NCI designation as a Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP). Today, the CCOP program has a solid foundation and has dramatically improved access for cancer patients to NCI-sponsored clinical trials of innovative new cancer therapies, cancer preventive strategies, and interventions to reduce the symptoms associated with cancer.
Through Heartland Cancer Research Program, led by our oncologists, we can offer lifesaving cancer research trials to our patients. Today, Missouri Baptist Cancer Center patients have the opportunity to participate in more than 60 active clinical trials. Find out more by visiting the Heartland Cancer Research Program.
