    Experience the Blessing Difference

    We know you want to receive the best care possible, without traveling far. That is why we have designed a health system that meets your needs. Blessing is:

    • Comprehensive: We offer care across a range of specialties, from a heart and vascular center and a dedicated breast center to expert care for cancer, diabetes, orthopedics and many other conditions.

    • Care that focuses on you: We are a regional leader in patient- and family-centered care. This is evident not just in our processes and protocols, but also in the way we go the extra mile for our patients. Whether it is giving out gas cards to ensure people can make it to follow-up appointments or doing bedside shift changes so you are aware of who is in charge of your care in the Emergency Center, we keep you in the center of your care.

    • Community-focused: We want to make sure we reach everyone in the community. That includes investing strongly in Illini Community Hospital, a small critical access hospital serving the Brown, Pike and Scott County regions. We also have several community wellness initiatives, aimed at helping people reduce their risk factors for certain diseases. To learn more about how we give back to our communities visit our publications page to read the community benefit report. 

    • Forward-thinking: Blessing continues to respond to the changing healthcare needs of the region's residents by keeping pace with technology. With virtual health, we are providing services that allow people to see specialists without traveling. These virtual services are convenient, accessible and vital to our mission to improve quality of life. 

    • Mission-driven: Helping people stay healthy takes a village. We started the Blessing Foundation in 1983. Through this charitable foundation, we provide services such as wheelchairs, medications, and access to screenings and treatments that members of our community may need. When you donate to the Blessing Foundation, 100 percent of your money goes directly to the fund you have earmarked.
