Providing a Safe Care Environment

During the pandemic, you can be confident that the Cancer Care Center is taking extra efforts for your protection while ensuring your treatment and support needs are met.

Face masks required: Please bring your own face mask or face covering to wear. Masks are required at all Rush Copley facilities to guard against transmission of COVID-19.

Virtual waiting room for radiation patients: Patients who are here for radiation treatments can skip the waiting room. When you arrive, please remain in your car. When we are ready to begin your treatment, you will be called in and taken directly to the treatment room.

Virtual support: Although your support person cannot physically attend consultations or office visits at this time, we will use an iPad to connect to that person virtually so you have an extra set of eyes and ears “attending” on your behalf. This option is available to both new and established patients.

More information is available on policies and measures we are taking to provide a safe environment for you and all of our patients and staff.
