The University Hospital Simmons Cancer Center Acute Care Clinic offers same-day appointments for established Simmons Cancer Center patients experiencing cancer-related symptoms or side effects that need urgent attention but are not immediately life-threatening.

As your cancer care providers, we never want you to visit an emergency department if it’s not needed.

How to Make An Appointment

  1. If you have an urgent medical concern, contact your Simmons Cancer Center oncologist/care team and tell them the problem you are having. They may be able to help you over the phone.
  2. If needed, your oncologist will schedule an appointment for you with Simmons Acute Care and tell the staff to expect you.
  3. If you are unable to reach your oncologist/care team directly, please call 214-645-HOPE (4673) and ask to speak to a member of your care team as soon as possible. (If you have a life-threatening emergency, always call 911.)

Acute Care Treatments

We provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic treatment approaches tailored to your needs.

Some of the symptoms we can help you with include:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dehydration
  • Infections and wound care
  • Unmanaged diarrhea
  • Dizziness, changes in blood pressure
  • Other urgent, non-life-threatening medical issues

Your First Appointment

Although we will make most of the arrangements for your appointment, there are a few things you can do to be prepared. Please:

  • Bring your insurance information and/or a form of payment.
  • Bring a list of your current prescriptions and over-the-counter (nonprescription) drugs, vitamins, or supplements, as well as a list of known drug allergies.
  • Arrange for your medical records and X-rays to be sent to us, or bring them with you.
  • Feel free to bring someone with you, ask questions, and take notes.

Valet and self-parking are available.
