Siteman Cancer Center Opens New Flagship Hospital

With a new, state-of-the-art bed tower, Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis aims to enhance the care and comfort of oncology patients who require hospitalization.

The high-rise, located at Siteman’s main location on the Washington University Medical Campus, consolidates and expands existing inpatient services. It also complements outpatient care provided at Siteman’s five outpatient facilities. The tower also serves patients of Siteman Cancer Network affiliates.

Named Parkview Tower, it offers cancer patients and their families private rooms – many with views of Forest Park, frequently named a top U.S. city park – and a rooftop garden that provides a calm and comfortable outdoor environment. Other features include dedicated corridors for patients and for medical and hospital staff members designed to reduce distractions and noise that can interfere with rest and recuperation. Washington University Physicians at Siteman will continue to provide care.

“As Siteman’s flagship cancer hospital, this facility welcomes people in need of inpatient oncology services, including those with complex cases who travel from across the country,” said TimothyEberlein, MD, Siteman’s director. “Our patients deserve the very best, not only in terms of precision medicine, but in terms of patient- and family- centric care. For them, our new high-rise combines the latest technology with the most supportive environment possible.”
