Our Story, Our Mission to Serve

Community First Medical Center’s mission is to provide compassionate medical and nursing care as well as advanced diagnostic and treatment services that promote our patients’ well being.

Recognizing the need to provide quality healthcare in the local community, our dedicated doctors and medical staff stood united in the face of a looming hospital closure. Ultimately pushing the previous ownership to put the hospital up for bid, our doctors, together with Community First Healthcare of Illinois, saved the hospital in December of 2014 and continue to put the health of our community first.

Community First Medical Center is a 299-licensed bed hospital, which includes industry leading spine and orthopedic practices, a radiology center, and an extensive outpatient services center.

Community First Medical Center provides the highest quality of healthcare to a densely populated community requiring readily available treatment. Our coordinated medical staff gives our patients the opportunity to return to their families, return to this community, and live a better life.
