Quality & Safety
At OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group, we know quality is measured in many different ways. Those differences matter most when you need care for a complex condition - your choice will have a direct impact on your care.
Top Hospital - Three Years in a Row
One measure of success we are particularly proud of is our "Top Hospital" designation by The Leapfrog Group, an award we have received for three consecutive years.
Improving Care for Newborns
Our OSF OB/Nursery Department took a lead in the nationwide effort to discourage elective births before 39 weeks, unless medically necessary. We also provide a family-centered unit with one nurse caring for mom and baby, and have made it a goal to place newborns with their mothers immediately after birth to promote crucial bonding.
While there’s not a universal agreement on which method is best, we invite you to follow the links below to find comparative and quality information.
