(Kewanee, IL / November 7, 2018) – OSF HealthCare Medical Group-Kewanee is pleased to welcome two new family practice physicians, Andy Peterson, M.D., M.P.H. and Hayley Ralph, M.D. to our staff.
Dr. Peterson and Dr. Ralph specialize in chronic illness management, immunizations, preventative care, sports medicine and primary care. In addition, Dr. Peterson offers care for men’s health and Dr. Ralph offers prenatal and postpartum health and women’s health.
Dr. Peterson completed his medical education at University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford and residency in Family Medicine at University of Missouri-Columbia. He is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
“I grew up 20 miles south of Havana, Illinois. Even though I have lived in bigger cities in the Midwest for my education, I always considered myself a ‘small town kid,’ Dr. Peterson said. “There is something comforting about a small town to me. I couldn’t imagine raising a family in any other setting.”
Dr. Ralph completed her medical education at University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford and residency in Family Medicine at Saint Louis University-Belleville. She is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
Dr. Ralph grew up in Streator, Illinois. When she was looking for a community to call home, Kewanee area was a natural fit. “Kewanee is similar in size to where I grew up. I can identify with many of the successes and challenges the community may encounter,” said Dr. Ralph.
Dr. Peterson and Dr. Ralph are married and welcomed their first child in June 2018.
The office for Dr. Peterson and Dr. Ralph’s is located at OSF HealthCare Medical Group-Kewanee, inside OSF HealthCare Saint Luke Medical Center, 1051 West South Street, Kewanee. Appointments can be made by calling 309.852.7700.
