OSF working toward Streator goals

Posted by wlpo on February 14, 2016

Slowly, OSF Center for Health – Streator is getting through the red tape required to operate an emergency center from the old St. Mary’s Hospital.

This past week the Department of Public Health granted OSF Healthcare a waiver allowing ambulances to transport Streator-area patients to urgent care. An ambulance, however, must be stationed at the urgent care facility. OSF and a Medical Transport company are working on that.

Next…..the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review board – on Tuesday – likely will grant OSF Healthcare approval to operate an emerency center. IDPH will then license the facility after inspection is completed.
