Kewanee Hospital is set for a name change upon it's change of ownership. The hospital was recently aquired by the OSF Medical Group and once that purchase is approved by a board of the State of Illinois Kewanee Hospital will become OSF Saint Luke Medical Center.
“The process for choosing the name was very special to our board and our executive team,” stated Lynn Fulton, CEO of Kewanee Hospital. “It was an opportunity for OSF to share an important part of their Ministry with Kewanee Hospital as well as highlight our new future as part of the OSF Healthcare System.”
Saint Luke, for those that don't know, is the Patron Saint of Physicians. The ownership change and new name of Kewanee Hospital should become official on December 17th following a meeting with the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board.
