Medical Help for Sexual Violence Survivors

Whether or not you choose to file a report, it is important that you obtain medical treatment following sexual assault.  A hospital exam to collect evidence for potential criminal prosecution should be done as soon as possible after an assault.  This exam can only be performed at a hospital emergency room.  Having the exam completed keeps your options open.  Under state law, Sexual Assault Survivors Emergency Treatment Act (SASETA), emergency room services are free to all victims of sexual assault in Illinois, as well as up to 90 days of follow up care related to the assault.   In the Bloomington-Normal area, this exam is performed at:
