Treating Cancer Patients Who Have Urgent Care Needs

Treating Cancer Patients Who Have Urgent Care Needs

Huntsman Cancer Institute Acute Care (HAC) offers same-day care for cancer patients who need quick treatment for side effects and other issues, including the following:

  • infections
  • nausea or vomiting
  • dizziness
  • side effects from cancer treatment like chemotherapy
  • blood pressure or blood sugar issues

The HAC team examines your health problems, answers questions, and gives treatment. The HAC care team can follow up with multiple visits until your health problems go away or improve.

The HAC is on the 2nd floor of the HCI cancer hospital in Salt Lake City.

About Appointments

The HAC is not a walk-in clinic. To make an appointment, please contact your cancer care team and tell them the problem you are having. Your care team can often help you without referring to the HAC. If needed, your care team will set up an HAC appointment for you. If you are unable to reach your care team, please contact the HAC at 801-213-4222 for assistance.

The HAC’s team of cancer specialists helps ensure each patient receives outstanding care for urgent and acute medical needs, like nausea, infections, dizziness, or side effects from chemotherapy. Our physicians work with nurses, medical assistants, scheduling coordinators, and many others to provide high quality cancer care to our patients. The HAC team members are all trained in cancer care, and work directly with your care team at HCI to ensure your individual needs are met for urgent care issues. In most cases, you will receive same-day feedback from the HAC team if you visit them for an urgent medical need.
