At Baylor Scott & White McClinton Cancer Center, our goal is to give patients and families the physical, emotional and spiritual support needed during their cancer journey. We treat cancers ranging from skin and gynecological cancers to breast and blood cancers. We also use integrative medicine, which combines modern medicine with complementary health services – ?such as acupuncture and massage – to heal both biological and psychological problems. Some of the services offered include Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Lymphedema services, and a 29-bay Outpatient Infusion department. Also available to families is Jamie’s Place, a free grief support program located in Waco for kids ages 5-18 and parents or caregivers. Jamie's Place is available to families who have experienced the death of a loved one due to any cause. Services provided include education, referrals and support groups for kids and families.
