Donate Now

Since our founding in 1877 by six pioneer Franciscan sisters, the Mission of OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center has been to serve persons with the greatest care and love in a community that celebrates the Gift of Life. That means we keep the patient at the center of all we do. At OSF Saint Francis, we are faithful in helping meet our patients’ needs—body, mind, and spirit.

Over the years OSF St. Francis has grown to become the fourth largest medical center in Illinois. Our facility has a medical staff of 850+ physicians, 5,000+ employees and 600+ patient beds. OSF St. Francis is the area’s only Level 1 Trauma Center and a major affiliate of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria.

OSF Saint Francis is the home of OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois, OSF Illinois Neurological Institute (INI), the OSF Cardiovascular Institute, the OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home, Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center and more. To learn more, visit

OSF Saint Francis is proud to call Peoria home. As a compassionate “Community of Caregivers,” we work together to continue to grow and serve our community with the greatest care and love. When you support OSF HealthCare you become part of our Mission. We could not do this work without you.
