THE NEW CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
Ground was broken in 2007 for a building that promised to take healthcare in downstate Illinois to a new level. It was called the Milestone Project as it would become a significant event in the Sisters’ 133-year history of caring for patients and their families. With the building opening in July 2010, the name “Milestone” was retired. The end of the project, but the beginning of a new era in healthcare for central Illinois as the new Children’s Hospital of Illinois and OSF Saint Francis Medical Center shined!
The generosity and passion of our donors have helped create a facility second to none. Paired with the expertise, compassion and dedication of our caregivers, we make miracles happen every day.
