Hope is Home
Building A Dedicated Cancer Center
For too long, many cancer patients and their families have had a perception that they need to travel long distances to receive the care they need. We have the physicians, health care professionals and expertise within the Southern Illinois Healthcare system. The one thing we lack is a dedicated facility for cancer related services. That is why we are asking you to become a partner in philanthropy with us now.
SIH has excelled in the recruitment and retention of top quality medical professionals and have provided them with state-of-the-art equipment. The Cancer Center brings those patients, doctors and services under one roof for greater efficiency and quality of service for everyone involved in this medical journey of cancer treatment. The new Cancer Center will give us the ability to expand even more upon the quality and breadth of services provided.
Your Role in the Future of Health Care
Some have asked if it would be possible for SIH to fund the entire project on their own. With the uncertainty in the future of healthcare reimbursements and with the many capital obligations that SIH has committed to expanding quality care and services for the region, that is not feasible. Cancer has touched so many lives that we feel this is the appropriate time and opportunity to reach out to the greater community we serve and ask for public support of this project.
