Radiation Oncology includes two locations that offer the services of external beam radiation, Tomotherapy, and CyberKnife. The laboratory provides a full range of hematology and metabolic services. We also offer a Palliative Care consultation program, which has an active daily census of 15 â€" 20 patients per day. The CHRISTUS Spohn Cancer Center is accredited by the Commission on Cancer and is the only regional cancer center to receive this honor. With three clinics located throughout the Coastal Bend, the CHRISTUS Spohn Cancer Center and its clinics are a place where oncologists and clinicians are passionate about their patientsâ€™ care.
The CSCC Associates are known for their compassion and caring attitudes. Associates frequently comment on how they receive more than they give. The tenure of our staff attests to their commitment to our patients and the CSCC program. What sets the CHRISTUS Spohn Cancer Team apart is their commitment to healing patients in mind, body and spirit. Their patient-centered focus is at the heart of CHRISTUS Spohnâ€™s Mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.
