In 1909, Alice and Caroline Graham gifted the original structure of the hospital to the community. It was their belief that a hospital was needed to better serve the Canton community. Since then, Graham Hospital has continually grown into the progressive, comprehensive Health System we know today.
The last 100 plus years have included, - many renovations, building additions and new construction to keep the promise that Graham was founded on, “Quality Care for All”.In 2021, an era in which there are very few independent community hospitals remaining, Graham Health System remains a strongly independent Health System serving patients throughout Central and Western Illinois, with operations in four counties: Fulton, Mason, Knox, and Peoria.
Highlights from the history and growth of Graham
Construction began on Graham Hospital and a Training School for Nurses.
The 2000’s have been a significant time of growth, bringing expansion and innovation to OUR community. Graham invests over $86 million dollars into our facilities over the next 16 years. These investments allow us to bring new treatments and advanced technology in order to better serve our community.
Seeing the growing need for patient centered healthcare in Central and Western Illinois, Graham Medical Group adds clinics in Macomb and Galesburg.

I am a cardio rehab patient and I would like to acknowledge the great care I’m receiving in rehab. Everyone involved in the program is personable, knowledgeable, and well trained. They are responsible for dropping my BP from 252/100+ to 136/73. I feel safe under their watch!Jane Johns, Cardiac Rehab patient
