About the Organization
Morris Hospital and Healthcare Centers is known for its compassionate and personalized approach to healthcare as a well-established, independent community hospital who's mission is to improve the health of area residents. We are the only hospital in Grundy County, but our service area extends to 20 communities and 7 zip codes totaling a population of 170,000 residents. We're an independent, community hospital that's been in Grundy County and surrounding communities since 1906.
We attribute our outstanding care to a dedicated team of over 200 physicians, along with more than 1,400 employees and 630 service and fundraising volunteers who feel privileged to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors during some of life's most important moments.
Our commitment to improving the health of our community is also evident in the services we provide, many which aren't typically found in a community hospital setting. We are a 89-bed hospital, but operate as if we're a regional training, 250-bed facility considering the specialties and medical resources we provide to the communities we serve. To date, we have 29 healthcare locations that serve the surrounding communities near Morris. Our service area goes as far north as Yorkville, south as Dwight, west as Ottawa and east as Channahon/Shorewood.
We'd like to hear from you if we are the type of place that you'd to practice medicine for many years in a growing and beautiful community like ours.
