New OSF Center for Health – Streator Facility Dedicated

OSF Healthcare System has assumed ownership of the St. Mary’s Hospital site, 111 Spring St., Streator, previously operated by Hospital Sisters Health System. As of Jan. 4, the facility is now known as OSF Center for Health – Streator.

A dedication ceremony was held in the center’s chapel with Streator city officials, media and OSF HealthCare administration and staff in attendance.

Until a new facility is opened, OSF Center for Health – Streator will occupy the former hospital site and offer an array of outpatient services. Laboratory, diagnostic imaging services, outpatient procedures and rehabilitation services are now available onsite. Physician clinics will transition to the building’s third floor, offering access to family and internal medicine providers, as well as a cardiologist.

The first floor is dedicated to urgent care services, staffed 24/7 by board-certified emergency medicine physicians. Patients with more severe conditions will be transported by ambulance to the nearest OSF sister hospital should inpatient admission be necessary.

OSF HealthCare is awaiting State of Illinois approval for a stand-alone emergency center. Once final authorization is obtained, the urgent care clinic will transition to a true emergency center.

An open house will be held at the new OSF Center for Health – Streator at 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, Jan. 16. The community is encouraged to attend.
