The University of Illinois Cancer Center is an entity that works in conjunction with the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System, also known as UI Health.  As a patient of our Cancer Center, your physicians, nurses, therapists and the entire Cancer Center staff and administration will be working closely with UI Health Oncology/Cancer Services to navigate your treatment.  

For your benefit, we work very closely with UI Health to ensure that the information that you receive about your cancer diagnosis, treatment, and care options, is clear and comprehendible.  We also provide opportunities for clinical trial participation, and we encourage you to connect with our Clinical Trials Office if there is a trial that you think might be of benefit to you.
