Our Mission

In the spirit of Christ
and the example of Francis of Assisi, 
the Mission of OSF HealthCare 
is to serve persons with the greatest care and love 
in a community that celebrates the Gift of Life.

As a premiere children’s healthcare system, we address the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the pediatric patient based on three principles:

Children are unique and have special needs.
A child’s illness impacts the entire family.
Childhood illness interferes with normal childhood growth and development.
