Treating you like family

Technology that changes lives

Patients treated for cancer at HSHS St. John’s Hospital have access to the very latest in PET/CT imaging – the only scanner of its kind in the area.  Springfield-area diagnostic radiologist Dr. Brittany Varney says it is faster, uses less radiation and allows her to see lesions smaller than she has ever seen before. Learn how the new scanner is making a real difference in patients’ lives.

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) Advantage

St. John's Cancer Program is approved by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Interdisciplinary cancer conferences, along with a collaborative referral patterns, assure patients are directed to excellent care in a timely manner.

When patients receive care at a CoC facility, they also have access to information on clinical trials and new treatments, genetic counseling, and patient centered services including psycho-social support, a patient navigation process, and a survivorship care plan that documents the care each patient receives and seeks to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.

The CoC provides the public with information on the resources, services, and cancer treatment experience for each CoC-accredited cancer program through the CoC Hospital Locator at
