The Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) and Shelby Memorial Hospital (SMH) have announced their pursuit of sharing and aligning resources to continue to improve the patient experience and health care delivery throughout Shelby County. HSHS operates several local health systems in central Illinois. Marilyn Sears, CEO of SMH, told Regional Radio News that an example of one of the programs that will be provided is the Joslin program, a renowned diabetic program.
Sears says she is excited about the ease of access to HSHS specialists.
Sears says as they approach their 100th year in 2018, the alignment helps them lay the foundation down for the next 100 years.
