Why Choose Passavant


If you’re looking to join a team that has the technology of a large facility, but hasn’t lost its small town community feel, Passavant Area Hospital is the place for you.

Located in Jacksonville, Illinois, Passavant is a progressive, forward-thinking hospital that is committed to providing patients with top-notch quality care. We go the extra mile, give that extra attention, and strive to make a difference in each and every life we touch.

But being a great place to work isn’t the only reason you should choose Passavant. We’re also part of a great community. We have fantastic schools, great retail business, diversity, a local symphony, community theatre and more. Add that the fact we are just a few hours away from big city activities in St. Louis and Chicago and it’s easy to see why when people come here to work, they come here to stay.

Passavant Area Hospital is a place you can call home.

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.
