Houston Methodist Cancer Center at Baytown

Accredited by the Commission-on-Cancer, we are committed to the best possible cancer care for local area residents

Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital is the only facility in Baytown accredited with the American College of Surgeons - Commission on Cancer (CoC). Facilities achieve such accreditation after proving commitment to providing the best cancer care and complying with CoC standards. We meet these standards by providing a vast scope of high quality, specialized services — screenings, diagnostics, genetic testing, advanced technology, access to clinical trials, and patient support — near your home.


For more than 30 years, our compassionate and supportive team has guided patients through cancer treatment and survivorship. Our Houston Methodist Cancer Center at Baytown expansion project completed in 2019 was designed to further meet the growing needs of the Baytown community and provide leading-edge cancer care. The project included the addition of new infusion therapy suites for medical oncology patients, as well as radiation oncology and improved conference and education facilities for patients and physicians.


Our experts, including medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, oncology nurses and diagnostic imaging technicians, use the most advanced technology and  techniques, providing targeted and focused treatments near your home. Dedicated rehabilitation and nutritional specialists, as well as our oncology nurse navigators, will accompany you through survivorship, ensuring you receive the select care, support and resources you need.


Additionally, we are committed to cancer prevention by offering screenings and educational events. We also offer lung cancer and breast cancer high-risk programs designed to help patients prevent these diseases with nutrition, education, genetic counseling, and disease surveillance.
