Community clinic opens inside Decatur Memorial Hospital

Decatur- A new collaboration between Decatur Memorial Hospital and SIU School of Medicine will give patients in Decatur easier access to care. On Thursday night SIU Pediatric Specialists sat down and answered  questions. These specialists included Neonatology, Cardiology and Development and Behavior.

It showcased how SIU will bring sub specialists to Decatur, so patients don't have to travel great distances to receive services.  The collaboration will take away an average driving time of 45 minutes for patients.
