New Hope Clinic
Founded in 1995, the New Hope Clinic has provided exceptional care for patients with HIV/AIDS and other complex infectious diseases. Located in Drummond Hall, the state-of-the-art New Hope Clinic is directed by Marcia Sokol-Anderson, M.D., a board-certified infectious diseases and HIV/AIDS specialist. She is assisted in the clinic by a nurse who specializes in HIV care, and subspecialty medical residents.
For patients affected by HIV, the clinic provides excellent medical care, but also supports case managers on site. Case managers offer social work services, including counseling of newly diagnosed patients, assistance with determining insurance coverage, access to lifesaving medications and help with arranging transportation for visits to the clinic.
In addition, counselors who specialize in psychosocial issues relating to HIV are available in the clinic. Patients also have the option of enrolling in clinical research trials to test the efficacy of cutting-edge medications to treat HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases.
Patients with complicated infections are referred to the clinic by their primary care providers, or are seen in follow-up after hospitalization at Saint Louis University Hospital. Typical patients are followed for severe or unusual infections, including MRSA infections, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, brain abscess, and tuberculosis. Home IV antibiotic therapy is an integral part of care coordinated by the Infectious Diseases Clinic.
To make an appointment, please call (314) 977-9050. Please note that patients who have an infectious disease other than HIV/AIDS must have a referral from a physician to be seen at the New Hope Clinic.
