A Proud History of Caring.
Arriving in Illinois in 1875, a dedicated group of Sisters built more than hospitals – they constructed a new form of health care. Committed to treating the whole person, the Sisters responded to a need and expanded their healing ministry throughout Illinois and Wisconsin.
After over a century, Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) continues to meet the ever-changing needs of its patients, yet remains true to the founding Sisters’ values of compassion and healing.
Ready for the Next Era of Health Care.
To ensure you always receive great care, the HSHS Medical Group is anticipating and preparing for patient need as health care changes.
By taking steps such as placing nurse navigators in our clinics and creating a system based on quality of care and not quantity of care, you can expect to receive the patient-first attention you deserve.
