About Us:

Presence St. Mary’s, originally known as the Emergency Hospital, was opened in March 1897 by the Sister Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary. In 1925, it was re-named St. Mary’s Hospital. In 1997, the Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary combined with the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart and Sisters of Mercy of Americas to form Provena Health and the hospital name changed to Provena St. Mary’s Hospital. Through a merger of Provena Health and Resurrection Healthcare in 2011, Presence St. Mary’s Hospital is now a part of the largest Catholic Healthcare System in Illinois, Presence Health.

At Presence St. Mary's Hospital, our expectant mothers are treated to a warm and caring experience by the Family Birthing Center staff. Each birth is considered a one-of-a-kind special delivery. It’s no wonder generations of families are born here.

We understand your feelings as an expectant mom, so we've designed our Family Birthing Center to help increase your confidence. We offer a full service obstetric center with a personal, caring touch. For the infant or mother who requires advanced care, Presence St. Mary’s is equipped with state-of-the-art monitors and a team of highly trained staff.

We are focused on giving you and your baby the best start possible.
