Our center includes an infusion center, medical oncology physician clinics, radiation oncology and lab services, all inside St. John's Pavilion. Infusion chairs face a bay of windows overlooking the Pavilion lawn to allow patients to see out, but not allow passersby to see in.

A nurse navigator is available to help guide cancer patients during this challenging and difficult time. She identifies needs and coordinates services for care and designs individualized survivorship care plans after treatment is complete. To learn more, call (217) 814-5591.

As a teaching hospital, we have physicians who provide patients with cutting edge cancer therapies. Our patients have access to clinical researchers exploring cancer-fighting treatments for adult and pediatric cancers.

As a research facility we exchange information with other cancer centers across the country, and we maintain a cancer registry of more than 20,000 case studies of treatments and techniques.

St. John’s Children’s Hospital takes special care of kids with cancer, too. Pediatric oncologists at the Cancer Center participate in nationwide clinical trial protocols from the Children’s Oncology Group to give our patients access to the same clinical research trials as other major children’s research hospitals nationwide.
