Welcome to HSHS St. Mary's Hospital

The colleagues, medical staff and volunteers welcome you to HSHS St. Mary's Hospital. Spending time with us may not be something you planned, but while you are here you are more than our patient—you are our guest.


Mind, Body and Health 

Here at St. Mary’s, we understand that exceptional health care, supported by the latest in technology and delivered with compassion and respect, has the power to transform lives—physically and spiritually.

Founded by three sisters from the Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, St. Mary’s has a long legacy of providing compassionate care to those in need. Inspired by St. Francis, we focus on caring for you as a whole person—body, mind and spirit—and on building relationships. We are confident that you will notice the difference this makes in your care experience.

While we focus on the spiritual side of medicine here, just as importantly, we are at the forefront of bringing the latest in medical technology and the best physicians to Decatur, Illinois.

Our commitment to holistic care, combined with the latest in medical science, makes St. Mary’s the kind of hospital where the best doctors come to practice the best medicine.

Like scientists, our medical team constantly challenges the status quo, searching for the best possible way to treat each and every patient. We are continually examining and thoroughly testing the newest research before putting it to practical use—all to ensure you are receiving the best care possible.

In short, we reveal and embody Christ’s healing love for all people by providing the best care you will find anywhere—care that encompasses your physical, emotional and spiritual needs, all delivered by the hands of our exceptionally trained, compassionate staff.
