Kellogg Cancer Center

Special Message:
At the NorthShore Kellogg Cancer Center, our highest priority is the health and safety of the communities we serve. We remain open to serve you, either through Telehealth visits (via phone or video) or in-person for active treatment and other critical care needs during your diagnostic and treatment journey. Rest assured that our team has extra safety measures in place should you need to visit any of our facilities for care.

Continuing to provide you with the cancer care you need during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is of the utmost importance to us. Please reach out to your physician via NorthShoreConnect or call 847.570.2112 to discuss the best appointment option for your needs.

Kellogg Visitor Policy

As infection rates have continued to decline and vaccination rates improve, we have expanded our visitor policy within Kellogg.

Because Kellogg is a place where we are caring for immunocompromised patients, our visitor guidelines may differ from those of the hospital and other Medical Group offices. We fully understand the need for support from family and friends during cancer treatment and will continue to recognize and honor that, yet our focus remains on overall safety of our patients, families, and our staff.

At this time, one visitor will be allowed to accompany patients to all physician and/or APN appointments. If a wait is required prior to the visit, the visitor must wait in their car or in an alternative approved location (atrium café, cafeteria, outside, etc.). Visitors are not allowed to wait in Kellogg lobbies. Due to the ongoing COVID safety requirements, visitors will not be allowed to accompany patients to treatment appointments. A visitor may be approved by the clinical team to accompany the patient to a treatment appointment for certain exceptions. Approval for visitor must be obtained in advance of the patient’s appointment.

As a reminder, visitors are always welcome to participate in the physician visit via telephone. Just let your nurse or physician know when they arrive in the room. Your treatment nurse can also speak to a support person on the phone to summarize any discharge instructions.

COVID Vaccine

For information regarding COVID-19 Vaccine, please read the Vaccine Information for Cancer/Immunocompromised Patients. Additional guidelines are provided and referenced from The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and The National Cancer Care Network (NCCN)

Personalized Cancer Treatment

At NorthShore Kellogg Cancer Center, our collaborative team of physicians, nurses and other specially trained clinicians are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of customized care. Personalized medicine is no longer just the future of medicine, it is here. Our patients benefit from individualized treatment plans and the most sophisticated genomic and tumor analysis that directs therapy to one’s own “personal” tumor characteristics.

And just as important as DNA, we personalize treatment with a holistic approach, attending not only to your medical but also nutritional, psychological, financial and social needs. Our advanced molecular pathology and diagnostics laboratory capabilities allow us to leverage our considerable strengths in cancer care. Additionally, the continual expansion of our comprehensive immunotherapy program ensures that our patients benefit from leading-edge technology and sophisticated treatment options.

As NorthShore, we have become a national force in the integration of complex genomic information into clinical care. Now, we are establishing a groundbreaking program to incorporate the latest in genomic testing and science for our advanced cancer patients. The Kellogg Cancer Genomic Initiative reflects our commitment to personalized medicine and superior care.

From the quickly evolving world of immunotherapy, which we have made a priority and conducted a vast array of clinical trials, to surgical enhancements including robotic pancreatic cancer surgery, we ensure that our patients have access to the latest and most effective therapies.

As both a teaching and research-driven program, we set ourselves apart from many other healthcare institutions. Another distinguishing feature is our close partnership with the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and its science faculty.
