Auxiliary Gift Shop

The Gift Shop is home to a variety of "on-the-go" snacks, magazines, books, flowers, cards, balloons and more!  Our selection can certainly help make a patient's stay more enjoyable.

Known for its treasures and fun variety, the Gift Shop also features candles, jewelry, decor, holiday goodies and more... perfect for year-round gift giving!

The Gift Shop is staffed by volunteers.  Its proceeds are utilized by the Auxiliary to make important equipment purchases on behalf of the hospital.

Voted one of the best local gift shops according to public survey, the Gift Shop is located within the front lobby of OSF HealthCare Saint Elizabeth Medical Center.  For more information, call (815) 431-5278.
