OSF HealthCare – located at 530 NE Glen Oak Ave in Peoria – marked a new era in August of 2021 with the groundbreaking for the OSF HealthCare Cancer Institute, a 180,000-square-foot building on the campus of OSF HealthCare Saint Francis Medical Center in downtown Peoria. It is expected to open to patients in early 2024.

From the OSF HealthCare Cancer Institute website:

“When cancer is what we’re fighting and it’s the future we have to lose, audacity is our greatest hope. It lives in everything we do. It lives in tomorrow’s innovative technology, in world-renowned research and in our top partnerships with like-minded institutions. It lives in our Mission, to serve all persons with the greatest care and love. The OSF HealthCare Cancer Institute is the most ambitious philanthropic endeavor in OSF’s history. We understand the magnitude of this vision and it will only come to fruition with the financial support of people like you, who share our foresight. With your help, we can make Peoria and Central Illinois a destination for hope, healing and world-class treatment. Together, we can usher in a new day for cancer care — giving cancer patients the promise and possibility of many new tomorrows.”
