KEWANEE, Ill. – Kewanee Hospital officials announced Wednesday they have signed an agreement to join the OSF Healthcare System.

The agreement is pending approval from the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board but the affiliation is expected to be official next spring.

Once the transaction is complete, all Kewanee Hospital employees will become employees of OSF. The affiliation will not effect or change the medical staff status or clinical privileges of Kewanee Hospital medical staff.

All patient records will remain intact.
