Centered on a Mission of Caring

HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital Breese is an award-winning, acute-care hospital, providing complete inpatient, obstetric, surgical and outpatient facilities. Our HealthPlex/YMCA (adjacent to the hospital) provides state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, medically based fitness training and rehabilitation therapies, enabling individuals to live healthier lifestyles and actively participate in improving their health.

As part of Hospital Sisters Health System, St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese offers a “continuum of care” to the patients and families we serve. By leveraging the strengths of our 14-hospital system, patients in our rural hospital are able to receive care that was once available only in large, urban medical centers.

Throughout our continuum of care, you will find the same foundational mission principles – that every life is a sacred gift, and every human being is a unity of body, mind and spirit. Our health care ministry calls upon us to promote wellness for all persons, with special attention to our brothers and sisters who are poor, underserved and most vulnerable. These principles are the basis for St. Joseph’s Hospital, as well as HSHS as a whole, to provide high quality, cost-effective health care to the patients and families we serve.

Choosing a Healthcare Exchange Plan

HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital – Breese is committed to providing patients with the highest quality care that is easy to access and affordable. As part of the HSHS health care system, we work with many different insurance and managed care companies each year to seek ways to better align the payments we receive with the quality of care we provide for our patients.

This year, insurance plans offered on the Healthcare Exchange, including Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), may have changed provider options. Therefore, your previous health care plan may no longer include St. Joseph’s – Breese or other HSHS facilities and physicians.

Please note (non-exchange) BCBS offerings, such as PPO plans, are accepted at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
