Cancer Care

At SIU Medicine, hematology and oncology housed within Simmons Cancer Institute. The team here is dedicated to supporting our patients through their cancer journey. At Simmons Cancer Institute, we practice the team approach to cancer care. This means that our patients’ cancer treatment plans are formed collectively by our team of oncologists, radiologists, surgeons, counselors, and chemotherapy certified medical staff. These plans are tailored to each patient. The multidisciplinary team approach to patient treatment provides a higher quality of care for both the patient and their families.

Commitment to our patients is strengthened through our participation in clinical trials and basic science research. Clinical trials test or compare new treatments with current standard treatments, to find better ways to prevent, screen, diagnose and treat cancer. Basic science researchers work toward discoveries in cancer biology that will further lead to better detection, treatment, and prevention options in the future. The combination of the team approach with research advancements leads to improved care for our patients and their families.

Our multidisciplinary team of oncologists and health care professionals care for a wide variety of cancer cases and treatments for patients in central and southern Illinois. Each member of our cancer care team brings their expertise to different aspects of the patient’s disease process and treatment options.
