Siteman Cancer Center-South CountyThe new Siteman Cancer Center outpatient facility in south St. Louis County will celebrate its public grand opening from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 18. The facility is at 5225 Midamerica Plaza, near Interstate 55 and Butler Hill Road in Mehlville.

The free event will feature: health screenings and disease risk assessments, samples of healthy food, hands-on activities that explain cancer’s genetic links, one-on-one discussions with Washington University physicians, a children’s activity tent, children’s bicycle helmet checks and a tent offering therapeutic support for cancer survivors.

The facility, which opened in January, offers access to the same technology and advanced treatments, including more than 240 clinical trials, available at Siteman’s main location at the Washington University Medical Center.

Siteman also has locations in Creve Coeur at Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital and in St. Charles County at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital. Collectively, the cancer center is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top 10 cancer centers in the nation.
