BJC Collaborative Marks Five Years of Progress
In October 2012, four leading, independent nonprofit health care organizations in Missouri and Illinois joined together to form the BJC Collaborative. The founding organizations — BJC HealthCare, Memorial Health System of Springfield, Ill., CoxHealth of Springfield, Mo., and Saint Luke’s Health System of Kansas City, Mo. — teamed up to better prepare for the future of health care and achieve even higher quality care for the people they serve.
Since then, four additional health care organizations have joined the BJC Collaborative: Blessing Health System of Quincy, Ill., Southern Illinois Healthcare of Carbondale, Ill., Sarah Bush Lincoln Health System of Mattoon, Ill., and Decatur Memorial Hospital of Decatur, Ill.
With 41 hospitals and 69,537 employees, the health systems within the BJC Collaborative span a service area that includes a population of 11.2 million people across seven states (Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa).
The first five years have marked a time of progress and accomplishment.
