Budget woes mean campus facility will stay closed indefinitely

From The Springfield State Journal-Register: Southern Illinois University School of Medicine’s year-old SimmonsCooper Cancer Institute building will remain vacant indefinitely — a victim of the state’s ongoing fiscal crisis. The new building is designed to be headquarters for about 55 SIU doctors and related support staff. It would include a chemotherapy infusion area with 20 stations, 23 exam rooms and four minor-procedure rooms. There also will be an on-site laboratory, a conference room, a family and patient learning resource center and a small cafe.
