Serving the needs of our community
HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital has served this community since its founding in 1875 by the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis. From the very early days to the present, the hospital has a well-established tradition caring for those in need of health care and of partnering with the community to improve the overall health of the community.
As a non-profit hospital, under the Illinois Community Benefits Act, we annually file a Community Benefit report with the Illinois Attorney General. It includes our Mission statement; community benefit plan - community health care needs considered, amount and types of community benefits provided, charity policy, and audited financial statements.
Our community benefit activities take many forms, involve many partners, and serve a variety of populations.
