Elective Procedures, Non-urgent Surgical Cases Postponed
Due to the impact of the coronavirus COVID-19 on our local health care facilities, SIU Medicine elective procedures and non-urgent surgical cases are postponed until further notice. SIU Medicine providers may assess and postpone other non-essential visits. These appointments will be rescheduled for a later date, once COVID-19 allows us to do so safely.
Our team will be reaching out to reschedule any non-urgent appointments or elective surgeries that can be delayed. This delay in non-urgent office visits will help our physicians and staff provide support to patients suffering from COVID-19. If you have any questions about this, please call 217-545-8000. To request an appointment in the future, please fill out this form online.
Beginning today, SIU Medicine clinics have new visitor restrictions: One visitor will be allowed per patient if needed for patient assistance. Children (under the age of 18) may have two visitors to allow for parents/care providers to be present. Patients may request an exemption from their provider for extenuating circumstances, such as end of life care. Visitors may be required to check in at the entrance of the facility when they arrive.
