The Medicine Room is located on the northeast side of the Ambulatory Care Unit on the first floor of the Patient Care Center. The Medicine Room is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays. Patients receive chemotherapy (cancer-fighting drugs), blood products, and other medicines in this area on an outpatient basis.
On weekends and after 5 p.m. on weekdays, the Medicine Room operates the after-hours clinic. See “2.10 When the Primary Clinics are Closed” below. St. Jude patients may be seen by the doctor on call for concerns that occur outside regular clinic hours.
