    The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria is one of the regional campuses that make up the nation's largest public medical school. The Peoria campus is known among students for its strong academic setting, small class sizes, rigorous curriculum, and hands-on clerkships. It includes numerous residency programs, including 30 categorical pediatric residents and 32 combined medicine-pediatrics residents. This, combined with the large patient referral base and exceptional facilities, make it a great opportunity for physicians seeking the ideal combination of teaching and practicing medicine in a research-based university setting.

It is a 144-bed, full-service hospital-within-a-hospital, with more than 120 pediatric specialists in 40+ subspecialties.

The hospital is also proud to house the St. Jude Midwest Affiliate, which brings some of the care and services offered by St. Jude in Memphis to central Illinois.
