Chemotherapy Treatment

The Cancer Care Center is licensed to administer chemotherapy. We have created a comfortable place with a caring, professional team that is focused on you. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, we welcome you to call us to arrange a tour.

Who Can Receive Treatment at this Center?

Any patient requiring medical oncology care and chemotherapy, may REQUEST to be referred to the Cancer Care Center at Effingham Health System.

If you think you may have cancer, you should see your primary care physician or the appropriate specialist. If they diagnose cancer, they will explain treatment options, which may include surgery, radiation, and/or medical oncology (including chemotherapy).

Once your physician suggests medical oncology or chemotherapy, you may request to be referred to the Cancer Care Center at Effingham Health System.

Location and Easy Access

The Cancer Care Center is located inside Effingham Hospital in Springfield. The Center has a dedicated entrance, easily accessible from West First Street. Patients may be dropped off under the covered awning. Adjacent parking is available for patients and family members.
