At the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross, we understand that total cancer care goes well beyond chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. We consider it our mission not only to provide excellent care, but also to serve as a resource for any issues you may have. We truly enjoy getting to know each patient, and we encourage you to ask questions and share concerns at any time.

We offer an array of supportive care services on site, including a cancer resource center, support groups, rehabilitation services and social workers.

They can act as a bridge to the medical care team, too.
