In this newly created role, Dr. Hu will focus on further developing Mercy’s oncology services across the St. Louis metro area, including Franklin and Jefferson counties. He will work to provide a new level of coordinated care to patients with a unified team of physicians across specialties.
“I am confident our recently integrated oncology service line puts Mercy in a unique position to provide a more comprehensive and patient-centered cancer program for the communities in the St. Louis area and eastern Missouri,” said Dr. Hu.
