Located on the southwest side of the building, the center is open to cancer patients, their families, healthcare providers and other members of the community during normal business hours.

Appearance Center

The Appearance Center is a place where patients who are dealing with hair loss as a side effect of cancer treatment may come to obtain a wig or head covering (turban, scarf, or hat). The Springfield Regional Cancer Center, through fund raising efforts and donations, is able to provide these items to our patients free of charge. Donated wigs are cleaned according to industry standards prior to display.

Specially trained volunteers are available to assist with fittings. For a wider variety of selections, the Springfield Regional Cancer Center has relationships with local vendors who will provide services at their venues by appointment.

The Appearance Center is located between the lobby and the resource library. Items that are available can be viewed during normal business hours. For assistance, please ask the receptionist at the front desk.
