OSF HealthCare is a not-for-profit Catholic health care organization that operates a medical group, hospital system, and other health care facilities in Illinois and Michigan.[3] Headquartered in Peoria, Illinois, OSF HealthCare is owned and operated by the Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis.[4]


The sisters arrived in Iowa City, Iowa in 1875 from Germany. At the request of Rev. Bernard Baak in Peoria, Illinois, six sisters were sent there to care for the sick in 1876. The sisters became an independent religious community in 1877.[5]

In April 2012, the Sisters dropped a bid to acquire a health care organization in Rockford after the Federal Trade Commission challenged the merger as anti-competitive.[6][7] Sister Judith Ann is also the subject of the 2013 documentary Divine Prescription: Stories of Faith, Community and Healing.[8]


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.[9]


OSF HealthCare employs nearly 21,500 Mission Partners in 135 locations, including 14 hospitals with 1,799 licensed acute care beds, 28 urgent care locations, 11 centers for health, and two colleges of nursing throughout Illinois and Michigan.

The OSF HealthCare physician network employs 1,500 primary care, specialist and advanced practice providers.

OSF HealthCare, through OSF Home Care Services, operates an extensive network of services, including eight home health agencies, eight hospice agencies including an inpatient hospice home, home infusion pharmacy and home medical equipment.

It also owns Pointcore, Inc., composed of health care-related businesses; OSF HealthCare Foundation, the philanthropic arm for the organization; and OSF Ventures, which provides investment capital for promising health care innovation startups.

The Ministry Services office in Peoria provides corporate management services, as well as direction, consultation and assistance to the administration of the health care facilities.

OSF HealthCare provides state-of-the-art, compassionate care to nearly 3 million people in the communities it serves.[10]
