Making quality cancer care more convenient for those who would like to stay close to home, MD Anderson recently expanded services at its Regional Care Center in Katy, a west Houston suburban community.
Located on the campus of CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital, the center provided radiation treatment services when it opened in late 2007. Expansion this February added medical oncology and hematology consultation, outpatient chemotherapy, laboratory and pharmacy services, and an on-site business center.
The center also offers nutrition education, assessment and counseling, as well as social work counseling, including support groups and community resources.
The medical staff is led by Gregory Chronowski, M.D., assistant professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology, and Nikesh Jasani, M.D., and Sunil Patel, M.D., both assistant professors in the Department of General Oncology.
MD Anderson has six regional care centers in the greater Houston area.
