Presence Covenant Medical Center is a 210-bed comprehensive medical facility with a rich history in the Champaign-Urbana community.
Through our predecessor organizations, Mercy Hospital (founded in 1919) and Burnham City Hospital (founded in 1894), we have a legacy of advanced, compassionate care that stretches back over a century. And today, we're one of east central Illinois' most advanced medical facilities, with a medical staff of over 250 physicians representing various areas of specialized care. By merging with two other Catholic health organizations, we became part of the Provena Health System in 1997. In 2011, we merged again, this time with Resurrection Health Care to form Presence Health, the largest Catholic healthcare system in Illinois. Through this new organization, we're part of an extensive network of hospitals, extended care facilities and clinics dedicated to improving community health care. And we're working hard locally to put those resources to work.
Presence Covenant has the area's largest inpatient rehabilitation center, featuring facilities for physical, occupational and speech therapy. Also home to Presence is Presence Orthopedic Services, the Presence Center for Healthy Living, and the area's only Adult Behavioral Health Unit in a hospital setting. Its design incorporates a holistic approach to care, much like our state-of-the art Blessed Beginnings Birthing Center that includes home-like birthing suites. While the special touch makes both facilities comfortable for patients, they also feature advanced technology. For more than a century, we've offered a team of skilled physicians, nurses, technicians and medical workers dedicated to providing patient-focused community care that makes a difference. It's an accomplishment we're proud of and a commitment we're determined to keep as the next century unfolds.
We strive to provide you what you deserve, excellent care. From the moment you walk in the door, our qualified and skilled staff are here to care for you every step of the way.
