Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center

Find Screenings and Support

Simmons Cancer Center provides the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex with cancer prevention, screening, treatment, and survivorship services. We offer these at our UT Southwestern Medical Center flagship campus in Dallas and through our affiliate, Parkland Health & Hospital System, as well as at our satellite facility, Moncrief Cancer Institute.

The Parkland system serves Dallas County’s under- and uninsured. Moncrief serves Fort Worth and surrounding rural areas, working closely with the JPS Health Network to meet the needs of Tarrant County’s uninsured.

Our cancer screening services, including mobile mammograms, are currently operating with enhanced safety procedures. We encourage you to schedule your regular screenings. And we urge you to reduce your cancer and COVID-19 risks by giving up smoking or vaping.

Call 833-722-6237 or email CancerAnswerLine@UTSouthwestern.edu to connect with a service that meets your needs.
