About Anderson Hospital PDF Print E-mail

Anderson Hospital opened in 1977 and has strived since to meet the healthcare needs of the surrounding communities through a family-oriented healthcare delivery system that is cost effective and quality driven.  

Anderson Hospital is a 151-bed community hospital that serves the needs of one of the most rapidly growing sections of Illinois, Madison County.  Since Anderson Hospital is located within 20 minutes of downtown St. Louis, many of our 280 physicians share positions at various St. Louis Hospitals.  Our location also benefits our employees who are involved in networking and activities of the Metropolitan St. Louis area.  St. Louis offers excellent centers for the referral of tertiary patients, as well as a wealth of educational opportunities for continuing education classes or the pursuit of a formal degree.   

Although it is important to be involved with the St. Louis hospitals and keep our competitive edge, Anderson Hospital strives to make a difference in our surrounding communities.  We work in collaboration with local health clubs and health departments to promote wellness in the community.  We offer educational programs on disease management and health promotion, health screenings, health fairs, and support groups.  In addition, Anderson Hospital collaborates with local universities and colleges and is utilized for clinical rotations in a variety of patient care areas.   

Recent expansions to the Pavilion for Women, Intensive Care Unit, Surgery department, Transitional Care Unit, Radiology Department and Rehabilitation Services have been implemented in response to the growing needs of the Community.  Anderson’s improvements in technology and expanded services have increased the volume and variety of patients.

Anderson Hospital is committed to improving the knowledge and expertise of its staff through continuing education.  Tuition reimbursement has assisted many employees with administrative and advanced nursing degrees.  Anderson Hospital also compensates its employees for continuing education in certifications such as BLS, ACLS, and PALS.

Anderson Hospital offers competitive wages and numerous benefits which will be discussed upon your visit to our Human Resources Department.
