The SIH Cancer Center, located in a wooded area along Highway 13 in Carterville, Illinois, is being built using green construction elements, resulting in an environmentally responsible and resource efficient structure. The Center, which will be LEED Certified, will feature an open floor plan including a reception and lobby area with chemotherapy infusion, physician clinics, radiation therapy, laboratory and exam rooms nearby to enable easier access to patients. A healthy café, resource / information center, conference rooms and patient navigation services will also be located on the first floor. Further components include additional physician offices, administrative functions, pharmacy, cancer rehabilitation and clinical trials. Natural light, soothing color palettes, and warm furnishings throughout the center will provide a relaxing atmosphere for patients and families. Ample parking will be provided and a meditation garden will be on-site for patients, families, care givers and employees.
