Sammons Centers Map

You may have seen in Friday’s Dallas Business Journal that Baylor Health Care System is making some changes to our cancer centers across North Texas. For the past two years, we’ve all been working together on what we’d like to introduce to you as the Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Centers.

While you might see us changing the signs on doors in our hospitals to reflect this new name, there’s much more happening in the background that you won’t see at first glance. Novel approaches are being tested at facilities, while doctors are working closely with our cancer researchers in Dallas to get clinical trials out to our patients. This oncology network consists of facilities that hold certifications from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer.

The hope is that our Sammons Cancer Centers will bring to our patients throughout North Texas the quality clinical care and leading edge technology for which the Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas is known. We want to make cancer treatment as convenient as possible without sacrificing quality care.

“We are very excited about growing together to bring the best possible cancer care to the citizens of North Texas and beyond,” said Dr. Alan Miller, director of the Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas and chief of oncology for Baylor Health Care System.

Seven of our Baylor Health Care System facilities are now Sammons Cancer Centers, with two more expected in a few years:

  • Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas
  • Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Fort Worth
  • Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Irving
  • Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Garland
  • Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Grapevine
  • Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Plano
  • Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Waxahachie
