Screening and Support Services

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 in Dallas and through our affiliate, Parkland Health & Hospital System, as well as our satellite, 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 John Peter Smith Health Network to meet the needs of Tarrant County’s uninsured.
