Dear Patients, Family members and Friends,
Welcome to the START Center for Cancer Care, a state-of-the-art, integrated cancer center located in the heart of San Antonio’s medical center that combines the strengths of two of the city’s most advanced cancer practices: South Texas Oncology & Hematology (STOH) and South Texas Accelerated Research Therapeutics (START). Our mission is to provide the highest quality of care for cancer patients and to accelerate the development of new anticancer drugs with the purpose of improving quality of life and survival for patients with cancer.
We are committed to providing excellence in medical care in a personal and caring environment. Our goal is to work with you to treat your disease while making you feel informed, reassured and regarded with compassion. Soon after your initial registration you will be met by one of our patient advocates who will assist you, alleviate some of your concerns and help to reduce the stress of your experience. We hope you will call upon any member of your healthcare team with any questions or concerns because our promise is to provide you with the assistance, quality of care and kindness that you deserve. If you have questions or suggestions, which we welcome, please call our patient advocate department at 210-593-2652 or send an email to email@example.com.
