In a world fighting with a common cause to stop the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the heart has become a symbol of hope and solidarity. OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center is bringing light to the ‘Heart Hunter’ crusade and the fight against this global pandemic.

The medical center is projecting a red light in the shape of a heart on the outside of the hospital for all to see. The display is visible from I-74 on the west side of the hospital.

“Health care workers on the front lines across the country are dealing with the devastating effects of COVID-19 every day,” says OSF Saint Francis President Bob Anderson. “The heart symbol seems to resonate, and if this small gesture helps spread the message of hope, we are happy to have it shine brightly.”

The display is visible after dark, and media is welcome to take photos or video on the medical center campus or elsewhere where the view may be better. If you plan to be on our campus, please text or call Stacy Campbell using the number above prior to arrival.
