Memorial ranked fifth among the best hospitals in the St. Louis area and 19th in the State of Illinois. In addition, Memorial Belleville is listed among ‘high performing’ hospitals for treatment of heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hip replacement and knee replacement.
    We are very proud to be ranked #5 among the best hospitals in the St. Louis area.
    Additionally, it is also an honor to be recognized as a high performing hospital in these specialty areas.  This recognition is a testament to the quality care our physicians and staff provide our patients.
p07 Memorial    Memorial Care Center, the 82-bed short-term rehab center located adjacent to Memorial Hospital Belleville has been named one of American’s Best Nursing Homes by U.S. News & World Report for eight consecutive years.
    In addition, both Memorial Belleville and Memorial East are MAGNET designated facilities, the highest honor for excellence in nursing, Memorial’s two hospitals are the only hospitals south of Springfield, Illinois to achieve this designation.  Only 6% of hospitals in the nation have MAGNET recognition from the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC).
    Construction is underway on the Memorial Hospital East campus in Shiloh for a second Medical Office Building which will house Siteman Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the region.
    Currently, Siteman Cancer Center’s is located at 4000 North Illinois in Swansea, where the Cancer Treatment Center and Illinois Oncology provided services. Medical and radiation oncologists who previously worked at this facility are now part of Washington University Physicians in Illinois.
    The new facility in Shiloh, scheduled to open in early 2020, will accommodate multidisciplinary care with radiation oncology and chemotherapy services, and will provide access to therapeutic clinical trials, which are designed to evaluate the effectiveness of innovative cancer therapies. By participating in a clinical trial, patients can gain access to investigational therapies that are not widely available to the public. For the convenience of patients, the new location also will include a diagnostic laboratory and a pharmacy.
    We are very excited to bring Siteman Cancer Center to the Memorial East campus. This will provide convenient, world-class cancer treatment services to residents throughout the entire region.
