Welcome to Missouri Baptist Medical Center

Strength Behind Every Patient. Compassion in Everything That We Do.


Why is community-based cancer research important?  Being able to join research studies in a person’s own community allows that individual to stay close to family, friends, support systems, and local physicians and health organizations, where high quality clinical studies are resulting in better care.

Missouri Baptist Medical Center (MBMC) is a proud member of Heartland Cancer Research, one of a small number of networks that comprise the National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP)

Research in the community setting allows access to a larger and more diverse patient population in a variety of “real world” healthcare locations. This can accelerate accrual to clinical trials, enable feasibility testing of promising new interventions, and increase the generalizability of study findings. Engaging community oncologists in collaborative research can also facilitate the uptake of effective, evidence-based practices into routine care.

Testimonials

The greatest benefit of being in a clinical trial is the close monitoring and the availability of new drugs being tested.  The main reason I chose to go into a clinical trial was because if it doesn’t help me, it might help someone in the future.
