HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital offers top quality surgical care, technology and expertise close to home

(EFFINGHAM, IL) – With the upcoming holiday season and everyone shopping for gifts for family and friends, communities often encourage area residents to consider “buying local” and supporting brick and mortar area businesses to help grow the communities in which they live.
Another way area residents can help their communities grow and thrive is through choosing local health care. HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital has been proud to serve the Effingham community for over 140 years.  As the region’s largest employer, St. Anthony’s payroll expenditures serve as an important economic stimulus, creating and supporting jobs throughout the local and state economies.  By choosing local health care, people support these area jobs and boost the local economy as the hospital employees live in area communities, purchasing local goods and services. Choosing St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital for health care also supports investment in technological advancements so that people can continue to receive the best care close to home.
One of the many services St. Anthony’s is able to offer high quality, advanced services close to home is general surgery services. Ryan Jennings, HSHS St. Anthony’s Chief Medical Officer, shared, “Often the misconception is that people have to travel to get high quality, more advanced care than what can be provided at their local hospital. On the contrary, choosing to receive your health care locally often is a better choice, as expert surgeons and St. Anthony’s surgical teams work together, using the latest technology and modern facilities to provide excellent care close to home,” he said. “Recovering from surgery with care provided by compassionate nurses who treat you like family brings a personal touch that can’t be experienced at larger facilities.”
