Referring a Patient
Outpatient: Physicians in the Department of General Internal Medicine welcome new adult patients seeking a primary care provider. To establish care with one of our physicians contact our clinic at 217-545-8000. We accept most insurance plans and care for uninsured patients. The reception staff will assist you in making an appointment.
Inpatient: The Department of General Internal Medicine also provides a Hospitalist service at St. John’s Hospital and Memorial Medical Center. If you are a physician requesting a transfer of your patient to one of our Hospitalists, please contact the switchboard operator at St. John’s (217-544-6464) or Memorial Medical Center (217-788-3000). We, in turn, can enlist the appropriate subspecialty help if needed.
