St. Francis Center for Health

Client: OSF Health System (Peoria, IL)

Project Lead: David A. Nelson, AIA, NCARB


St. Francis Center for Health is a 136,000 sf complex with a central courtyard encircled by a gracious, light-filled concourse, a dramatic interior space that offers nearly immediate visibility and convenient access to every destination upon arrival. Clinical services such as a diagnostic center, urgent care, radiology, surgery, women’s health and a breast center flank the concourse. Physicians’ offices are concentrated in a four-story block tied to the concourse in a modular layout that facilitates sharing of support spaces, staff and equipment. To respond to changes in healthcare delivery, each element of the Center can expand independently with minimal disruption to other operations, key to a building designed to double in size
