OSF Partnering with Mayo Clinic


ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center will partner with a prestigious medical group.

Today they announced they're joining the mayo clinic care network, which means starting Monday, OSF’s doctors will have access to all of the Mayo Clinic's research and studies. That also means they'll be able to work closely with Mayo Clinic physicians online and by phone. That's a development that OSF says will help seriously ill patients who can't afford to travel for medical care.

"In an area where we're always looking at the economic stability...folks won't have to leave for much of their health care. They'll be able to stay right here,” said David Schertz with OSF St. Anthony Medical Center.

OSF is the fourth largest health care provider in Illinois.
