While Texas’s cancer rate per 100,000 residents is among the lowest in the nation, more than 133,730 Texans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2021, including nearly 21,000 new breast cancer patients, according to The American Cancer Society’s estimates.

To expand access to comprehensive cancer care, Texas Oncology—with 500-plus physicians and 210 locations across the state—recently broke ground on a 22,300-sf cancer care center in Fort Worth’s Alliance Town Center. When it opens next year, the cancer center will provide medical oncology, hematology, radiation oncology and infusion treatments.

“The development of this new cancer care facility confirms our commitment to providing innovative comprehensive, and individualized care for patients across Texas,” says R. Steven Paulson, M.D., president and chairman of Texas Oncology.



Texas Oncology's 26,000-sf facility in Denison, Texas, opened last month.

The recently opened cancer care center in Denison, Texas, consolidates two older facilities.


The building will replace an existing Texas Oncology site in Keller, Texas. The building team executing this project includes the developers Hillwood and Meridien, architects Corgan and E4H, and the general contractor DPR Construction.

Last month, Texas Oncology consolidated its locations in Sherman and Denison, Texas, into a new 26,000-sf cancer care center in Denison, with an integrated team of six physicians and more than 85 support staff.  And in April, Texas Oncology and Christus Health broke ground on an 85,000-sf Northeast Texas Cancer and Research Institute in Tyler, Texas, with an anticipated 2022 opening. The Tyler facility will include 30,000 sf of clinic space and nearly 3,000 sf for research. Christus Health will house a 7,500-sf advanced imaging center. Another 10,000 sf will support the surgical oncology programs of the Louise Herrington Cancer Center.
