“We look forward to further enhancing access to quality care for our current and future patients in Southern Illinois,” said Shawn McCoy, CEO of Deaconess. “As with other hospitals that have joined Deaconess in recent years, we will maximize the strengths of each organization to enhance the community’s most needed services.” 

In 2020, Quorum Health Corporation, owner of Red Bud Regional Hospital and 22 other community hospitals across the country, announced it had entered into a financial restructuring agreement under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
