OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois Opens New Clinic in East-Central Illinois
OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois is expanding pediatric specialty clinic services in the Champaign-Urbana area with the opening of a multi-specialty clinic in the OSF HealthCare Heart of Mary Medical Office Building, 1405 W. Park St., Urbana – Suite 306.
The OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois Multi-Specialty Clinic in Urbana has eight exam rooms and currently offers pediatric cardiology and pediatric surgery care, with hematology/oncology services starting in July.
We are pleased to expand clinical pediatric services to children and families in the Champaign-Urbana area.
“The addition of OSF HealthCare Heart of Mary Medical Center to the OSF family earlier this year gave us the opportunity to bring even more specialty services closer to families. We believe in providing care as close to home as possible. It should also be reassuring to families that behind the specialty care provided in this community stands OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois in Peoria, the third-largest children’s hospital in Illinois, with all of our services focused exclusively on children,” added Joshi.
From June 2017 to May 2018, OSF Children’s Hospital in Peoria provided care to 835 patients from the Champaign/Urbana/Danville areas with 243 of those children admitted. Nearly 1,500 children from the area received care in an outpatient clinic setting.
The addition of the Urbana location brings to 17 the number of OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois satellite clinics.
“The availability of these clinics and access to this level of care is vitally important for families in the communities we serve in east-central Illinois. Some of these children require months or years’ worth of follow-up care,” said Jared Rogers, MD, Regional President of OSF HealthCare Heart of Mary Medical Center in Urbana.
The OSF HealthCare Children’s Hospital of Illinois Multi-Specialty Clinic in Urbana is seeing cardiology patients four days per month, surgery patients two days a month, and will be seeing hematology/oncology patients once a month when that clinic begins July 20. All will increase clinic days as necessary.
OSF HealthCare Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria is the third largest pediatric hospital in Illinois and the only full service tertiary hospital for kids downstate. With 136 beds and more than 141 pediatric subspecialists, OSF Children's Hospital cares for more children in Illinois than any hospital outside of Chicago. Formally established as a pediatric hospital within the walls of OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center in 1990, OSF Children's Hospital has over 7,000 admissions; 2,500 newborn deliveries, and 18,000 emergency department visits each year.
