Health Partnerships


At Passavant Area Hospital, we’re committed to the health of the communities we serve. As part of that commitment, we partner with other non-profit health organizations to bring you health education, screenings, and other important activities vital to maintaining a lifestyle.

Our partnerships include:

American Heart Association
The American Heart Association (AHA) is committed to fighting America’s number one and number four killers: heart disease and stroke. AHA’s mission to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent, while reducing deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20 percent by the year 2020. The AHA supports such life-saving efforts as research, education, advocating for better health, improving patient care and reaching populations at risk.

Passavant is partnering with the AHA this September for the first ever Red Out event or raise awareness and funds.

Central Illinois Community Blood Center
The Central Illinois Community Blood Center provides blood and blood components (plasma and platelets) to sixteen area hospitals, including Passavant Area Hospital.

The nurses from the Blood Center are at Passavant on the first and second Monday (Main Lobby and Meeting Rooms) of each month from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for blood donations. New donors are always welcome and all blood types are needed. For additional information, visit the Blood Center’s website, or call the Blood Center, (217) 753-1530.

Gift of Hope
Saving Sight
Passavant Hospital participates in eye/tissue/organ donations with Saving Sight and the Gift of Hope Organ and Tissue Donor Network. To learn more about eye/tissue/organ donation, please visit their respective web sites.

Mia Ware Foundation

The Mia Ware Foundation is committed to continuing its mission of educating, raising awareness, and supporting all who have been or will be touched by cancer. It’s a team effort that comes from personal awareness and the knowledge that sharing in the fight against this dreaded disease gives strength to all who travel this journey with us. The rewards of all our efforts give hope beyond today’s advances and living life to it’s fullest beyond tomorrow.

The Mia Ware Foundation partners with Passavant in offering complimentary mammograms to those who cannot financially afford the screening. In addition, the Mia Ware Foundation has donated funds to remodel oncology treatment rooms at Passavant, and partners with Passavant on the annual Colorectal Cancer Screening Kit initiative.
