The name of the cancer center honors the late David M. Sindelar and the leadership he provided St. Anthony’s Medical Center for many years up through its decision to join Mercy. That agreement was reached shortly before Mr. Sindelar lost his own battle with cancer in March 2017. Groundbreaking for the new cancer center took place in September 2018.
The name of the Rooney Breast Center honors Sara Sindelar, whose maiden name is Rooney, along with the rest of the Sindelar and Rooney families for their continued support of this project and the mission to serve the south St. Louis County community.
