(BOSSIER CITY, Louisiana) – CHRISTUS Health is expanding to give more patients access to high-quality care in Bossier through a new, expanded location of the CHRISTUS Cancer Center.
Providing the only cancer care in Bossier City, the new clinic at 2541 Viking Drive in Bossier City is next door to the CHRISTUS Bossier Emergency Hospital and will welcome patients for oncology and hematology clinic visits, chemotherapy, and infusion therapy services beginning Oct. 30.
“This new location doubles our capacity in providing first-class cancer care to the patients in Bossier Parish and beyond,” said Jennifer Varnadore, administrator of oncology. “As the only provider of cancer care in Bossier, this expansion allows our providers to see more patients, cutting down wait times for appointments and therapy.”
In addition to Bossier, a team of five medical oncologists and one radiation oncologist care for patients and their families at cancer clinics located at CHRISTUS Highland Medical Center in Shreveport and CHRISTUS Coushatta Health Care Center in Coushatta.
CHRISTUS also partners with Natchitoches Regional Medical Center to bring oncology expertise and physician resources to their Cancer Center in Red River parish.
“There is no need to travel out of town for cancer care,” said CHRISTUS Oncology Medical Director Dr. Scott Boniol. “We are very proud to be an accredited cancer center by the Commission on Cancer through the American College of Surgeons for over 30 years, which is a stamp of approval letting our community know CHRISTUS brings comprehensive, high-quality care.”
The network of CHRISTUS Cancer Centers offers complete oncology and hematology services, radiation therapy, clinical trials, and cancer support groups which are open to any patient in the community, not just those under care at CHRISTUS.
