As an organization, we boast impressive numbers: 6,700 team members, 40,000 inpatients, and 667,000 outpatients annually. Yet what matters equally is the size of our heart. Our ambitions. And our potential to do bigger and better things.
We’re achieving our goals by developing academic alliances with other respected institutions, including the BJC HealthCare Collaborative and the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. By earning important credentials and accreditations. By making a real investment in employee development.
