Providing compassionate care from diagnosis through survivorship in Baytown.

For more than 30 years, our compassionate and supportive team at Houston Methodist Cancer Center at Baytown has guided patients through treatment and survivorship. The recently completed expansion project at the Cancer Center in Baytown was designed to further meet the growing needs of the community and provide truly 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 doctors, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, oncology nurses and diagnostic imaging technicians, treat and manage cancer complications and use the most advanced radiation and imaging technology, providing targeted and focused treatments near your home. Dedicated rehabilitation and nutritional specialists, as well as our patient navigator, 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, educational events, support groups, clinical trial access and genetic testing close to home
