About the Sunny Hill Tuberculosis Clinic
The Sunny Hill Tuberculosis Clinic is an outpatient medical facility servicing the residents of Will County. The clinic has the legal responsibility for tuberculosis control and prevention. Although not a division of the WCHD (Will County Health Department), the TB Clinic is housed at the WCHD, and has its own section within the new WCHD building at 501 Ella Avenue in Joliet. (Previously, the TB Clinic’s address was 503 Ella Avenue.) The TB Clinic is responsible for surveillance, contact follow-up, training and education, monitoring and evaluation of case management for Latent and Active Tuberculosis.
Treatment and care of afflicted and suspected patient is provided by an infectious disease physician who clinically evaluates, diagnoses and prescribes medication and follow-up care. Prevention programs are provided to health agencies, schools, and the general public.
