BJC Collaborative marks five years
In October 2012, four leading, independent nonprofit health care organizations in Missouri and Illinois joined together to form the BJC Collaborative. The four organizations — BJC HealthCare, Memorial Health System of Springfield, Ill., CoxHealth of Springfield, Mo., and Saint Luke’s Health System of Kansas City, Mo. — teamed up to better prepare for the future of health care and to achieve even higher quality care for the people they serve.
Over the past five years, four additional health care organizations have joined the BJC Collaborative: Blessing Health System of Quincy, Ill., Southern Illinois Healthcare of Carbondale, Ill., Sarah Bush Lincoln Health System of Mattoon, Ill., and Decatur Memorial Hospital of Decatur, Ill.
