St. Michael W. Temple Webber Cancer Center takes great pride in making your experience and time spent with us as pleasant as possible.
Our Patient Information Handbook provides you with complete information about our services and what you can expect from us as you begin and go through cancer care services.
As the only fully accredited cancer program in the region, you are provided with an individualized admissions process, experienced and dedicated social workers, a Resource Library, and supportive services that treat you as a whole person.
Helping you "navigate" through the entire health care system today as a cancer patient and in the future as a survivor is one way we carry out Our Mission: To Extend the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ.
Early detection and preventative cancer screenings are provided, as well as support groups for patients and families.
Radiation Therapy, a type of cancer treatment, is administered under the direction of Howard Morris, M.D. Dr. Morris is board certified in both Radiation Oncology and Emergency Medicine. The Outpatient Chemotherapy Department is staffed with Oncology Certified Nurses.
Cancer information is available in our American Cancer Society Information Resource Center. Staffed by volunteers and open to the public from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, the resource center is available to those seeking the latest in cancer information.
The Texarkana Community Needs Assessment Committee is pleased to present their 2012 Community Needs Assessment.
