A passion for caring for communities drives Illinois hospitals to do more. IHA supports their efforts to improve lives—as care providers, job creators, innovators and more.
Healthcare is more than just medicine, appointments and tests. It’s also about heart. The people who work in hospitals are taking healthcare to the next level: They’re going above and beyond for patients and investing in their facilities to make the care experience better for the communities they serve. These are the stories that often don’t get told.
Illinois hospitals and health systems play a critical and irreplaceable role in the health of patients, communities and local economies.
Illinois receives less federal funding per Medicaid beneficiary than any other state and has one of the lowest Medicaid matching rates in the country.
