Alton Memorial Hospital first opened its doors in 1937. Since then, those doors have stayed open -- every hour of every day. Over the years, the names and faces of the caregivers have changed, but the quality of care has remained consistently high. In fact, Alton Memorial Hospital was ranked #1 by Consumer Reports in 2012 as the safest hospital in Illinois and the third safest hospital in the United States. In 2013, the surgical services department received Consumer Reports' top rating in patient safety for the state of Illinois.
It takes years to achieve a culture of excellence. And it takes people -- people committed to doing things the right way. Visionary leaders, innovative physicians and dedicated staff have laid the foundation that is at the Hospital’s core. Volunteers and donors, drawn to the cause, gave their time and money. Their generous support, both then and now, is deeply appreciated. For the outstanding care we can deliver because of you, many thanks.
