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 - Six Years

One measure of success we are particularly proud of is our "Top Hospital" designation by The Leapfrog Group, an award we have received for six years. Learn more about Leapfrog Group's Top Hospital Methodology .

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.
