Once You Arrive

If you are new to the cancer hospital and would like help finding your clinic:

  • Go to the information desk on the first floor.
  • Ask the desk attendant to call your Care Coordinator.
  • Wait for your Care Coordinator to greet you and walk you to your appointment.

You can get familiar with Huntsman Cancer Institute before your appointment by looking at our Building Maps or by taking an online Virtual Tour of the buildings.

If You Are Waiting

Occasionally, you may have some time between appointments, while waiting for lab work, or during treatments. Huntsman Cancer Institute offers many ways to help pass the time. These include a Cancer Learning Center with thousands of books and audio resources you may borrow for free, two restaurants, and computers with internet access as well as free Wi-Fi. Check out a complete list of things to do on our If You Are Waiting: Clinic Suggestions card.

Who You Will Meet

Our cancer care teams bring specialists from different disciplines together. They work side-by-side to develop the care plan that is best for each person. You and your loved ones are an important part of this decision-making partnership. (Remember, if you have been diagnosed with cancer, the Questions to Ask Your Doctor about Cancer factsheet might help you think about the questions you have before your appointment.)

Learn more about our Multidisciplinary Disease Groups and the roles of each team member. You may meet many of them on your first day.

You can find out more about your physician on the University of Utah Healh Care's Find a Doctor search.
