Jackie Kernan, president of OSF Saint Clare, reflected on the progress of the past year.

“We have certainly seen many changes and challenges,” Kernan said. “However, our Mission Partners continue to provide high quality, compassionate care to our patients and the community, supported by the OSF HealthCare Mission and Values.”

In addition to integrating into the Ministry, OSF Saint Clare implemented a new electronic health record, Epic, which brought OSF MyChart to the community. Mission Partners have been embracing the changes and improving their skills with hopes to better serve its patients.

The community is invited celebrate one year of OSF Saint Clare serving Princeton and the surrounding communities.
