Springfield Clinic believes we are our own community charged with caring for the communities we serve. We believe that to accomplish our mission of providing the highest quality health care to the people of central Illinois, we must build a community of caring in each of our service areas.

Our Community

Founded in 1939 by five physician partners, Springfield Clinic was one of the first multispecialty medical clinics to form in downstate Illinois. Now, Springfield Clinic’s 450 physicians and advanced practitioners and 2,400 employees serve a population of approximately one million patients throughout the central Illinois region in eighty medical specialties and sub-specialties.

Springfield Clinic physicians and advanced practitioners are committed to identifying and implementing cutting-edge, innovative solutions that improve overall patient health. We are known for delivering state-of-the-art therapies for conditions that would traditionally require treatment in larger, more metropolitan medical centers.

Our community of caring includes a full scope of ancillary services, such as digital imaging centers, lab, physical therapy, counseling, audiology, an Optical Centre and dietetics & nutrition, as well as the area’s first and largest free-standing Ambulatory Surgery & Endoscopy Center.

The Communities We Serve

Springfield Clinic’s primary care doctors in the Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Pediatric Departments are available throughout the twenty-nine cities we serve in addition to Springfield. In most cases, specialty care is offered at our Springfield offices; however, many of our specialists travel to more than 40 destinations—Springfield Clinic offices, other physician practices and local hospitals—to provide their expertise through our robust outreach program.

Springfield Clinic patients enjoy around-the-clock care through TeleNurse, a team of registered nurses available to assist them by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients can also use the myHealth@SC secure patient portal for viewing their electronic health record, communicating with their physician and scheduling appointments online. All Springfield Clinic team members work to ensure that every patient interaction is pleasant and action-oriented by solving problems, answering questions and guiding patients through comprehensive care.
