We know you have many choices when it comes to healthcare. Blessing is a regional health system known for the exceptional, quality care we offer our patients. We lead the region in many ways, not just in our services and offerings, but also in our approach to patient care and the community we serve.
Why Choose Blessing?
When you choose Blessing as a care provider, you are choosing a health system that is:
Fully accredited: We hold accreditation from all necessary and applicable federal and state agencies. We are particularly proud to hold these accreditations, affiliations and memberships because they reflect upon the high quality of the care we offer:
Equipped to deal with emergencies: Our Emergency Center is a Level II trauma center, staffed by doctors and nurses who are specially trained in advanced life support and trauma care. As an accredited Chest Pain Center and Primary Stroke Center, we can provide life-saving care for heart attack and stroke. We also partner with Air Evac to have a helicopter available for transporting people with critical needs.
Known for its staff: We consistently hear that Blessing healthcare providers and employees go out of their way to connect with patients and meet even the smallest need someone may have. This is not by accident. In addition to extensive medical training, board certification and advanced degrees, our doctors and clinic teams also have customer service training. This is why we lead the region in patient- and family-centered care.
Making healthcare more convenient: We are expanding healthcare access for busy people with our 2 urgent care clinics: the Walk-In Clinic, and the Illini Xpress in Pittsfield. We also offer innovative virtual care to make treatment more convenient, including Blessing Care on Demand and telemedicine services.
Providing a range of care: From preventive care to advanced surgical techniques and cutting-edge cancer treatment, we are ready to care for all the needs of our community. We have more than 20 specialties. Whether it’s 3-D mammography or Break Free, our renowned geriatric fracture care program, we are always looking for innovative ways to care for our patients.
In multiple locations: We meet our community where they are, to provide what they need. This includes the Surgery Center of Quincy, an outpatient surgery center. We also have Illini Community Hospital, a 25-bed critical access hospital that serves the surrounding rural population. We have invested strongly in making this a forward-thinking facility, including being the first critical access hospital in the state to have a geriatric psychiatric unit.
