Our exceptional cancer care just keeps getting better.

The J.B. and Greeta B. Arthur Cancer Center has earned an outstanding reputation for providing comprehensive cancer care, along with access to the best technology, skilled staff and the latest treatment options.

And now we have two exciting additions to share. First, Dr. John Bechtel, a board-certified radiation oncologist who has been with SSM Health Cancer Center in Jefferson City, joins Dr. Shahid Waheed, a board-certified medical oncologist, and a team of highly specialized nurses and therapists at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital - Audrain.

Second, our new Linear Accelerator will become operational in February. This advanced technology safely delivers the most precise radiation doses and expands treatment options for people with cancer.

Learn more about Dr. John Bechtel, who joined our St. Mary's Cancer Center team in early 2014.
