OSF Healthcare

Improving the Future of Health Care for All


OSF HealthCare is an integrated health system owned and operated by The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, Peoria, Illinois. The system employs more than 24,000 Mission Partners in 147 locations, including 15 hospitals—10 acute care, five critical access—with 2,097 licensed beds, and two colleges of nursing throughout Illinois and Michigan.


Jump Applied Research in Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (ARCHES) is an endowment partnership between Jump Simulation and Education Center at OSF HealthCare and The Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

It was established in 2014 by a $62.5 million gift to provide direct access and competitive grants to engineers and physicians working together to combat problems in the realm of health care. In 2019, the partnership was expanded with a new commitment of $50 million.
