OSF Center for Health Streator to Stay at Address of Former St. Mary’s Hospital

Posted by wlpo on June 7, 2016

Although it came under new ownership this year, if you’re looking for healthcare services in Streator you’ll still likely be heading to 111 Spring Street.

OSF Healthcare and the City of Streator announced Tuesday that the OSF Center for Health Streator will stay where the old St. Mary’s hospital was.  OSF Healthcare plans to remodel the property so that outpatient services and community programs can be more “centrally located.”

The company says the renovations will cost about as much as a new facility, but this way they can use more of that money for improving patient care. Streator Mayor Jimmie Lansford says it was the city that first asked OSF Healthcare to take a look at renovating the current site instead of moving.

OSF Healthcare officials say the renovations will include the demolition of the old St. Francis building, in addition to making several other required changes.  In total they’re expecting the project to take about two years.
