MD Anderson has been “Making Cancer History” for decades. This prototype project is one of three regional care centers in the Houston area strategically delivering MD Anderson oncology services to Houston’s growing suburban population. Now centralized into a three-story, freestanding, comprehensive cancer center, The Woodlands offers convenient access to world-class cancer care.

At four times the size of its former location, The Woodlands Cancer Center (Houston-area location) enhances the patient experience. Surrounded by the natural beauty of wood, sunlight pouring through large windows, and colorful abstract art, patients and families work closely with specialists to customize multidisciplinary treatment plans.

MD Anderson’s full roster of oncology services is provided by team members trained as cancer-fighting allies. New diagnostic services include bronchoscopy, endoscopy, and interventional radiology. A post-anesthesia care unit with up to 17 positions serves the diagnostic area.

The center offers everything you need in one location, including infusion therapy, laboratory and pharmacy services, rehabilitation, pain management, nutrition counseling, social work support, and genetic counseling. A women’s imaging center offers mammography, ultrasound, and other technologies for screening and diagnosis, all in a spa-like environment.

Patients can attend classes and support groups like “Breast Friends” at the Salus Wellness Area. Here, staff assist patients with breast prosthetics, wigs, and other supplies.

Need a quiet moment? Visitors can relax at the Tasting Grounds, sipping coffee with treetop views of the plush Woodlands landscape.

With many MD Anderson locations to choose from around Houston, cancer doesn’t stand a chance.
