Cancer patients in Webster Parish will no longer have to travel far from home for treatments.

Shreveport's Highland Clinic opened a cancer center branch in Minden on Wednesday.

The center, on Industrial Drive, will offer chemo and recovery treatments like hydration fluids. The staff says having a clinic nearby will remove stress from patients and their families.

"Cancer patients require a lot of help and support from family members and being so close to home provides family members the opportunity to ask questions while they're here and us to provide other support services for them" says staff member Kelly Warren.

The clinic will also offer treatments for arthritis and other ailments.
