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:

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.

New Start Date for Walking for Wellness

Posted on: September 21, 2017

Walking for Wellness at the Jacksonville High School Bowl returns for another season of exercise and fellowship Monday, Oct. 2. The Walking for Wellness program provides a safe place in which to get walking exercise when weather conditions make walking outside unpleasant or dangerous. The program is open 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day Jacksonville School District 117 is in session. The program is closed during school holidays (including Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation) and any day school is not in session. On average, 75 people walk at the JHS Bowl each day the program is open—resulting in about 6,400 “encounters” with community members during the five months each year that Walking for Wellness is in session. Walking for Wellness is also offered year-round at First Christian Church, 2106 S. Main, in South Jacksonville. The church is open to walkers Monday-Friday 12:30 to 3 p.m. Walkers there should use the south entrance. There is no cost to participate in Walking for Wellness. Registration is not required. For additional details on Walking for Wellness, please call Passavant’s Marketing and Communications Department, 245-9541, extension 3129.
