Transforming health care to improve the lives we serve is our Vision, and in the past year, OSF HealthCare embraced that Vision boldly. We did that by actively making our own advances in value-based care and innovation, instead of waiting to see what the industry would do and following suit.

That’s how last year we made great strides forward in the coordination of health care, innovation and our participation of the transformation of the industry at the national level. Those efforts are not distinct but intertwined, resulting in safer, better care and improved well-being for all our patients and all the communities we serve.

We also welcomed more Mission Partners to the OSF Family, including those at OSF Saint Anthony’s Health Center in Alton and OSF Saint Paul Medical Center in Mendota as well as Mission Partners at a number of physician offices in the communities we serve. At OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, we broke ground on an $85 million bed pavilion project that will enable us to convert semi-private rooms to private rooms and better house some other services. That growth is intentional and strategic, allowing us to expand our capabilities and the network of services we offer and touch more communities.

Take some time to read about our efforts and results last year, and the many ways we are transforming care to improve the lives of Those We Serve.
