Morning news conference should shed light on the future of St. Mary’s Hospital

Posted by wlpo on September 8, 2015

The future of St. Mary’s Hospital in Streator should become clearer today.

The hospital’s ownership group, Hospital Sisters Health System has scheduled a news conference Tuesday morning to talk about the future of the over a century old hospital. Back in July, HSHS announced plans to begin a formal process to transition all operations and assets of St. Mary’s to another provider.

HSHS President and CEO Mary Starmann-Harrison says “we have determined that Streator residents will be better served in the future by another organization that can deliver highly integrated health care services in the region”.

St. Mary’s Hospital opened in Streator in 1887.
