We look back on 2016 through our Annual Report with awe and appreciation for God’s great Gift of Life. It is the foundation of all we do at OSF HealthCare. It’s core to our Mission, which has not changed in nearly 140 years. But it’s also core to our Vision, which keeps us focused on the future and finding new ways to care for those God entrusts to us.

In 2016, we remained firmly grounded in our Mission – to serve with the greatest care and love in the Spirit of Christ. Our Mission Partners served one another, our patients and our communities. We are called not just as Mission Partners, but as friends, colleagues, neighbors and members of the communities where we live, work and pray. We worked to elevate the health of our communities in every way.

But with thankful hearts, we also used the gifts God gave us to solidify OSF Innovation, and we sharpened our focus on how our innovation efforts help us bring value in health care to Those We Serve.

We have much to look back on with gratitude, and much to look forward to. Enjoy this snapshot of a wonderful year in the service of Our Lord. May God bless each and every one of you.

Pax et Bonum,
