With the closing of St. Margaret’s Health, OSF HealthCare has other options for patients seeking cardiovascular care.

OSF HealthCare Cardiovascular Institute has served the I-80 corridor for over 25 years and will continue to have a significant presence in the region, delivering services to Spring Valley patients at nearby locations with the same providers they know and trust.

  • Patients should call OSF Cardiovascular Institute in Ottawa at (815) 434-0276 to make an appointment with their cardiovascular provider.
  • For medication refills, patients should call their pharmacy.
  • Patients who already have appointments scheduled will receive a letter and/or phone call from the OSF Cardiovascular Institute prior to their appointment, directing them to the appropriate location for care.

OSF Cardiovascular Institute is committed to delivering quality heart care for the Illinois Valley communities,” says Dr. Darrel Gumm, vice president, OSF Cardiovascular Institute. “From general cardiology to complex surgeries, our exceptional cardiology team is here to serve the communities in the Illinois Valley with the greatest care and love.”
