When It Matters, Choose OSF Saint Anthony in Rockford

No matter how good of a planner we are, no one knows when a serious health issue or trauma will arise.  Let’s face it, bad things happen to all of us.  But it’s how we prepare for those events that makes us feel less anxious and fearful. That’s what it’s all about – knowing enough to make informed decisions before the bad things happen.

At OSF HealthCare, we’re always prepared for your critical care needs even when you aren’t. It begins with 9-1-1. Whether that’s an OSF Lifeline ambulance (air or land) or one of our excellent regional EMS partners, your recovery care starts before you ever hit our doors.

You’ll feel the impact of our coordinated care from the moment you meet our highly-trained EMS field staff through the OSF HealthCare Emergency Department doors. You’ll be met with highly trained, highly regarded trauma care teams who are experienced in critical care.
