  • Perry Memorial Hospital and OSF HealthCare Communications Update

Perry Memorial Hospital, the City of Princeton, and OSF HealthCare teams are currently focused on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Our priorities are to concentrate on protecting our community residents, patients, visitors, and staff.  We are all closely monitoring the developing situation and are proactively working on the prevention of the spread of this viral illness.

The discussion to explore a more defined relationship between Perry and OSF Healthcare continues.  Our public outreach—via printed articles that explain the progression of this potential OSF affiliation—will be on hold until COVID-19 ceases to be a national crisis.
