The mission of SCI is to serve the people of central and southern Illinois by addressing their present and future cancer care needs through medical education, biomedical research, patient care and community service.

Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU practices “the team approach” to cancer treatment. Our team – the surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, genetic counselors, therapists, nurses and medical staff – meet together to decide the best treatment plan when you or your family member receives a cancer diagnosis. When the patient leaves SCI after receiving a cancer diagnosis, it’s not with a list of appointments for other opinions about treatment. It’s with a treatment plan and the knowledge that their cancer care team is working for the best possible outcome.

Collectively, our researchers have successfully achieved external grant funding in excess of $14 million. A large number of our physician faculty members also work with patients in clinical trials making new treatments and therapies available as cancer treatments advance.
In addition to patient care and research, many complementary programs and therapies are provided for our patients, their families and caregivers. These include support groups and dietary and nutrition counseling. Other services offered are yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Pilates and exercise programs specifically for cancer patients.

Simmons Cancer Institute opened its doors to patients in 2010.  Approximately 55 providers see nearly 1,750 patients each month.

The Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU Medicine offers personalized cancer care, infusion services and other diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for patients and families. Our team includes surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, genetic counselors, therapists and nurses.
