OSF HealthCare co-hosts IVAC community breakfast
OSF HealthCare partnered with the Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development to host a breakfast geared toward informing the community about health care changes in the Illinois Valley.
On Tuesday, July 11, local community leaders gathered at Senica’s Oak Ridge Golf Club to learn more about OSF HealthCare and how health care is changing in the Illinois Valley. Dawn Trompeter, president for OSF HealthCare Saint Elizabeth Medical Center and OSF HealthCare Saint Paul Medical Center, and AJ Querciagrossa, CEO of the Western Region of OSF HealthCare, provided updates on progress made in Peru and the surrounding areas, as well as what service delivery will look like in the future. Local OSF leadership gave an overview of OSF HealthCare Mission, Vision and Values, Key Results and strategy and what work has been done to ensure continued access to care for Illinois Valley residents.
OSF welcomed former St. Margaret’s employees with open arms and has hired over 300 new Mission Partners (employees), including more than 40 providers, in the last few months. OSF also saw a successful first day at the new Peru and Granville clinics, serving just over 100 patients on Monday. OSF is committed to the Illinois Valley and working diligently to open additional locations.
Illinois Valley residents seeking information regarding their care can call OSF at (844) 673-2778. This line is available 24/7 and will offer individuals a direct connection to the information they need during this time. Additionally, patients may seek care at OSF OnCall Urgent Care in Ottawa and OSF PromptCare locations in Princeton, Streator, Mendota and Ottawa.
