Message from Medical Director

Dear Patients,

Methodist Cancer Center at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital is at the forefront of technological advances in the treatment of cancer. The center continues from a heritage of leading cancer care and embraces the early technology breakthroughs that were pioneered at Houston Methodist Hospital.

Access to services, sought-after treatments and enrollment in protocols that were once only available in the Medical Center have now been initiated in the Northwest corridor of Houston, bringing cancer care closer to residents that live or work in the region.

Once the treatment journey begins, we pride ourselves on compassionate and personalized care to each patient. Our team of registered nurses, therapists and dosimetrists will ensure that all aspects of your care are addressed in an atmosphere of exceptional caring, and state-of-the-art technological equipment with the most up-to-date capabilities will be incorporated during your treatment.
