Blood transfusions and chemotherapy are scheduled for the morning hours.
Patients must be ambulatory, or require only minimal assistance. Patient who are not ambulatory must be accompanied by a caregiver.
All patients must be registered through Centralized Scheduling or online. Patients with special needs should call Centralized Scheduling at (217) 757-6565 to arrange for assistance before coming to the hospital. Limited breakfast and lunch items are available free of charge from St. John’s Food & Nutrition Department if the patient will be here four hours or longer. Patients with special dietary restrictions should inform the nurse. It is very important for patients to be on time for their appointments. Late arrival for a lengthy treatment may result in the need to reschedule. Keep in mind that if labs need to be drawn, this will increase the amount of time spent in the Day Hospital.
