One of the biggest assets Pekin offers is its very own hospital! Pekin Hospital is a 98-bed medical center that provides advanced care and state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities offered by few other hospitals its size. This includes a Level II Trauma Center, a Women’s Diagnostic Center, state-of-the-art MRIs and CT Scan technology, and The Baby Place - which is certified by UNICEF/WHO as “baby-friendly”. Only three other hospitals in Illinois and 154 hospitals in the U.S. have achieved this designation! Pekin Hospital has been serving our community since 1913 and has continued to expand and develop its services. It employs approximately 800 employees, including over 200 physicians in more than 26 medical specialties. Pekin Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission and is a past recipient of the Lincoln Foundation for Excellence Silver Award.
