OSF HealthCare is fortunate to have many dedicated employees who live our culture of philanthropy every day. Our ministry and culture continue to benefit from the philanthropic efforts.

The culture of philanthropy is deeper than supporting a charity. It is an understanding of the impact one can make through sharing a vision and embracing a partnership. On October 26, 2017, we honored a physician who embodies all that a culture of philanthropy represents in the OSF HealthCare ministry.

Dr. Rick Pearl is a true example of what can be accomplished through demonstrating this culture. This annual award will now be called The Pearl Award in his honor.
