About Us

McDonough District Hospital is centered in Macomb, Illinois, home to Division 1 Western Illinois University and Spoon River College. Macomb offers area residents numerous cultural, academic, and recreational venues. With only a three-hour drive to St. Louis and twice daily Amtrak service to Chicago, Macomb residents have ready access to even larger metropolitan areas.

McDonough District Hospital has been a source of healing, caring, and hope since we first opened our doors to the people of western Illinois in 1958. Through the years, we have continually expanded our high quality services for people at all stages of their lives. Today, MDH is a 48-bed healthcare facility providing an impressive spectrum of advanced medical treatments and personalized health services. While our services have advanced, our commitment to providing healthcare in an atmosphere of compassion and caring has remained constant. Our doctors, nurses, and staff provide our patients and their families continuity of care, close to home—making McDonough District Hospital our communities' first choice in healthcare.

MDH is accredited by The Joint Commission and is a member of the Voluntary Hospitals of America, Inc., and the Illinois Hospital Association. MDH operates based on revenues from the people it serves and has not levied property taxes since the 1980's.
