Children’s Cancer Care

The Cardinals Kids Cancer Center located at the David C. Pratt Cancer Center was designed in partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals and provides a uniquely child-centered cancer care environment. Mercy offers a Cardinals Young Adult Cancer Program at the Center. This first in the St. Louis region, Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer program supports the unique cancer treatment regimens and emotional needs of this young age group.   

Radiation Oncology

Mercy offers a full range of radiation therapy options for cancer patients. We’re pleased to offer outpatient radiation treatments that are both highly accurate and painless: stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). SRS refers to treatments within the brain, while SBRT refers to treatments given to sites in the body outside of the brain (lung, liver, pancreas, spine, head and neck region, adrenal gland, pelvis and bone).

Palliative Care

Your mind and spirit have equal importance to your body. Our patient-centered approach includes listening to you and your family so we can understand what’s important. We need to understand your goals for further treatment as you live with your disease.

Palliative care’s focus is on managing and/or relieving the underlying symptoms of disease. This requires a team with many specialists, because patients and families require different support at different stages of their illness. We work to care for you with dignity and respect for your individuality and wishes. We develop an individualized, complete plan to meet your needs.
