Today Bossier City welcomes its first Cancer Center.
The Christus Health Cancer Treatment Center opened with a ceremony today.
Until now, cancer patients had to travel to Shreveport.
Now they can get the care they need... closer to home.
"If you can treat them closer to home and minimize their waiting time and drive time, that’s a big deal," Says William Lunn, Chief Operating Officer.
The new center includes chemotherapy and oncology clinics.
