OSF in Peoria had this response thanking the Governor:
“OSF Health Care System operates five hospitals in north and central Illinois and we are grateful to Governor Blagojevich and the General Assembly for passage of the new hospital assessment program. The assessment program will bring millions of new Medicaid dollars to our system, which are critical for us to meet the needs of our patients,” said Fred Kalsbeek, Director of OSF.
