The end of the year is a good time to look back, celebrate our successes, recognize the challenges ahead and reflect on the journey of the past 12 months.

After COVID-19 dominated our activities at St. Charles in 2020 and 2021, 2022 was about accepting the virus as a part of normal life, incorporating it into the day-to-day care we provide and continuing to innovate and improve in areas across the health system.

When I think about what St. Charles has accomplished in 2022, I am enormously proud of our caregivers and physicians, our leadership and our organization as a whole. It takes incredible teamwork, laser focus and dedication to the communities we serve to push a regional health system forward in the midst of a pandemic and unprecedented financial challenges, and our team has done exactly that.

Here are just a few of the things we’ve done that come to mind:

This is, of course, just some of the good work happening across the health system – work that will continue in 2023 and beyond.

Thank you for your support of St. Charles.
