CENTRAL ILLINOIS: THE HEART OF OUR STATE

For some, the term “Central Illinois” brings to mind images of flat prairielands, bright yellow corn and fields of soybeans. We certainly do have agricultural roots. Yet we also enjoy the current cultural resources and modern attractions that keep life interesting.

Sprinkled among the towns and villages that define our lives are larger cities that grew up as regional centers of commerce, including healthcare, farming, manufacturing, and service industries. Featuring a wide array of protected areas and historical sites, Central Illinois is served by a number of major colleges and universities, and connected to the rest of the nation by major highways and interstates.

And if you want to know why it’s often called “the Heart of Illinois,” stop and meet some of the residents who choose to live and work where our hospital affiliates are located: Springfield, Decatur, Jacksonville, Lincoln, and Taylorville.

RISING: DOWNTOWN SPRINGFIELD

The downtown district of Springfield is alive with possibility. It has the feel of a small town where big dreams are coming true. Where the best of the past and promise of the future meet in one unique setting. And it’s all yours to experience. Take in a wide array of music festivals, art fairs, an amusement park, and the brand-new children’s museum Kidzeum of Science and Health. Or visit the iconic retailers and restaurants, eateries, wineries, and breweries that live side by side with our must-see Lincoln sites and historical landmarks./p>

The best part? Springfield is the very definition of easy living. Travel is convenient within the city and to places like St. Louis, Chicago, and Indianapolis. You can get around by Amtrak train, buses, and biking on marked routes. And for those who drive, there’s plenty of parking.

MORE ADVANTAGES: LOCATION, COST OF LIVING, AND PEOPLE

Springfield is constantly changing, growing, and improving to enhance our quality of life. But we still know who we are and what we stand for. This is still a place where everyone from every walk of life is welcome. Where people take the time to make conversation, and a new friend. Simply put, it’s more than a fun place to visit. It’s an exceptional place to live and work. Welcome to our town. And hopefully, yours: The new and ever-more-impressive Springfield, Illinois.
