Springfield Clinic has implemented a number of safety protocols to create the safest possible environment for our patients so that they can get the health care they need. 



The Sangamon County Department of Public Health (SCDPH) along with Memorial Health System, HSHS St. John’s Hospital, Springfield Clinic and SIU Medicine will share joint communications updating our community on the status of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Sangamon County. The SCDPH will share a daily update and the local health care organizations will share a weekly update as needed. 


Our number one priority has always been to keep our patients, community and employees safe and healthy. In order to do that during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are consolidating certain service lines to reduce the number of open locations as needed. 

Temporary Closures:

  • Springfield Clinic Optical Centre West (1937 W. Iles Ave. Springfield)
