Director's Description

Our Adult Congenital Heart Program is the only comprehensive care center in downstate Illinois. We have a robust primary clinic in Peoria, with additional regularly occurring satellite clinics to provide follow up care closer to the patient’s home. Our main hospital site is OSF Healthcare Children’s Hospital of Illinois in Peoria, though we also admit and care for patients at OSF St Francis Medical Center because of our “hospital in a hospital” arrangement. This allows seamless care provided from both pediatric and adult based providers. We are faculty members of the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria.
