    Family Medicine Clinics

    The Child Advocacy Clinic serves several central Illinois counties and works with DCFS, Child Advocacy Centers, Emergency Departments, District Attorneys and the Police as part of the Multi-Disciplinary Team in Illinois to provide the best and more comprehensive care to children and their families and to ensure the safety and health of children that may have been physically or sexual abused.

    The Comprehensive Care Clinic (CCC) is a multidisciplinary care clinic designed for patients with complex medical and social needs.  The clinic takes referrals mainly from outside agencies within Springfield which includes but is not limited to Mental Health Court, Springfield Police department, local hospitals, and Community Health Workers. Many of the patients within the CCC have history of significant mental health conditions, live in poverty, suffer from severe chronic medical conditions, and lack the social support needed to thrive.  Goals of the CCC ultimately are to improve patient satisfaction and engagement in primary care, reduce utilization of emergency services, and overall improve health and well-being of the population within the Springfield area.

    The goal of the Diabetes and Weight Loss Clinic is to deliver a non surgical, intensive behavioral therapy (IBT) program that meets Medicare B guidelines and results in improved clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction and quality of life for patients of the SIU Center for Family Medicine.
