Hospital Stays

Ensuring Your Comfort During Inpatient Cancer Care

Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center offers world-class cancer care in many locations within UT Southwestern Medical Center. Whether you are seeking treatment or visiting a loved one, we want you to feel welcomed and comfortable.

UT Southwestern is a large campus, and people sometimes find it intimidating. Generally for cancer care, your first appointment will take place at the Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, in the Seay Building.

Our Hospitals

Treatment for some cancer patients involves an overnight stay at the hospital, and patients stay at William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital or Zale Lipshy University Hospital. Both facilities have dedicated inpatient oncology units. Along with delivering world-class cancer care, Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center is committed to bringing compassion and convenience to all the patients we serve.

William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital

The entire 11th floor of Clements University Hospital is dedicated to cancer care. 

Zale Lipshy University Hospital

Zale Lipshy University Hospital is a 144-bed facility located on the South Campus across from the new Parkland Hospital on Harry Hines Boulevard at Medical District Drive.

General Information for Patients and Visitors

We want your visit to UT Southwestern to be as pleasant as possible, and we offer a variety of services for our patients and guests. We hope you will familiarize yourself with our services, and ask questions should they arise

Many patients and their loved ones tell us they keep a small notebook and pen with them so they can jot down notes, questions, ideas, and reminders whenever the thought occurs.
