“We are celebrating 135 years as a health care ministry in Decatur and the surrounding communities,” said Kevin F. Kast, President and CEO of St. Mary’s Hospital. “We look forward to providing exceptional care to our patients for another 135 years or more.”
On November 19, 1878, St. Mary’s Hospital opened its doors on the corner of Wood and Webster began by three hospital sisters of St. Francis—an international congregation of Franciscan Sisters. Built in 1961, the current hospital has added additional floors, expanded to three professional buildings, and the recent addition of a new Emergency Department and Main Lobby. In its first year, St. Mary’s Hospital admitted 25 patients—today, the hospital admits 7,600 patients annually.
