Pike County residents have access to quality health care services which greatly enhance the quality of life in the county.
One of the cornerstones for health care delivery in Pittsfield is Illini Community Hospital (ICH) which is located in the center of town. The hospital is a 25 bed critical access hospital, and is one of seven entities of the Blessing Hospital System in Quincy. The hospital has arthroscopic and laporscopic equipment, a radiology department with a CT scanner, and radiographic and fluoroscopy equipment. Clinical services and the emergency room are staffed 24 hours a day. Surgeries are performed by local surgeons and visiting specialists. When more advanced care is required, cases are transferred to the medical centers of the patient/ family's choice, usually to Quincy, Springfield, or St. Louis.
Illini Community Hospital was founded in 1942 as a not-for-profit, non-governmental, charitable organization by a group of citizens interested in improving the health care in the community. Today, Illini Community Hospital continues its mission to "be a community provider of health care services by coordinating, promoting, enhancing, and restoring good health."
Illini Hospital also operates the Illini Rural Health Clinic, which has two physicians and a certified nurse practitioner as shown in the attached PDF.
