Know When -- And Where -- to Go


Today, you have more health care options than ever before. Traditional doctors’ offices, retail clinics, convenient care centers and emergency departments are all able providers. But when illness or injury happens, deciding where to get care is the last thing you want to worry about.

That’s why Alton Memorial Hospital wants you to be as informed as possible about your medical choices. Understanding your options now will make decisions easier when you need same-day care down the road.

New Life-Saving CPR Devices for EMS

Thanks to the generosity of others, the DefibTech Lifeline Arm automated CPR device is now available on all Alton Memorial Hospital ambulances. Made possible with financial support from the Alton Memorial Health Services Foundation, the White Cross Auxiliary, and the Foundation’s annual Duck Pluckers Ball, AMH is now the only EMS service to have Lifeline Arm CPR devices in the Riverbend area, says Jason Bowman, manager of EMS.


Growing Again: New Doctors Office Coming to AMH Campus

The new building will connect to the current Medical Office Building B. The $8 million project will add 41,000 square feet of new office space (on two floors) to the campus.
