CHRISTUS St. Elizabeth & St. Mary Comprehensive Cancer Services
Everyone and Everything You Need To Fight Cancer.
CHRISTUS Hospital-St. Elizabeth in Beaumont is one of the only hospitals in the area to provide a dedicated oncology unit. The nursing staff in the 20-bed unit is certified in oncology nursing.
We offer a full range of diagnostic, medical, surgical, chemotherapy and support services for cancer patients. Because we understand that cancer is both a physical and spiritual challenge, our surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists diagnostic and interventional radiologists, and specially trained staff work as a team to help each patient in making treatment decisions, understanding the effects of treatment, and coping with side effects.
In addition, the CHRISTUS Mamie McFaddin-Ward Cancer Center is located on the St. Elizabeth campus in Beaumont. This modern 40,000 square-foot, full service oncology center is one of only 18 facilities in the state of Texas that is accredited by the American College of Surgeons as a Community Hospital. The center offers multi-disciplinary support, including patient/family counseling and genetic counseling as well as inpatient and outpatient radiation therapy, outpatient chemotherapy and immunotherapy. With world-class clinical care that is close to home, patients in Southeast Texas don't have to drive long distances for treatment.
Care for cancer patients at CHRISTUS Hospital-St. Mary in Port Arthur is coordinated in a 21-bed oncology/diabetes unit located on the hospital's fifth floor. Our nursing teams work with physician specialists to provide medical and surgical treatment. The primary focus of care is chemotherapy/biotherapy and radiation therapy.
Individualized care plans for those with cancer include social services, nutrition, pastoral care, physical/speech therapy, case management and education.
The St. Mary Outpatient Chemotherapy Clinic is located in the Professional Office Building connected to the hospital. Working with oncologists and hematologists, our registered nurses are certified to provide chemotherapy, medical injections for low red/white blood count and renal failure, blood transfusions, testing and infusion therapy for blood disorders. In addition, our dedicated nursing staff coordinates patient care and offers education, nutritional counseling, and support to patients and their families throughout their course of treatment.

Compassionate, personalized care at CHRISTUS includes treatment, support, and hope for each patient that is near to home and family. We help cancer patients and their families look beyond the diagnosis, cope with treatment, and start living life to its fullest once again.
Radiofrequency tissue ablation
Radiologists from Radiology Associates specialize in radiofrequency tissue ablation, or RFA, treatment for patients with liver, bone, lung, and renal cancer.
RFA is a minimally invasive operation in which doctors use ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) images to guide a thin metal needle through the patient's skin into the tumor. Employing RFA, interventional radiologists attack the cancer tumor from inside the body, which lowers the risk to normal organs, and reduces recovery times and discomfort.
