Our History

Marshall Browning Hospital

Marshall Browning Hospital was conceived on January 14, 1919, when Lillie F. Browning drew up her last will and testament, leaving the bulk of her estate to a trust which would have the responsibility of erecting and supporting a public hospital in or near Du Quoin. She requested the hospital be named in memory of her husband, Marshall.

Marshall Browning Hospital is licensed as a twenty-five bed Critical Access hospital established to provide quality medical, surgical and emergency health services to the residents of Du Quoin and the surrounding areas.

Marshall Browning Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and by the College of American Pathologists. The hospital is licensed by the State of Illinois Department of Public Health.

Services are provided with the understanding that patients shall, if able, pay reasonably for what they receive; those who are not able to pay fully shall pay what they reasonably can; those who can pay nothing shall be treated without payment.

The hospital serves as a community health center, cooperating in educating the healthcare personnel and the general public and participating in emergency preparedness efforts. The Hospital has expanded its services to patients through a comprehensive range of medical specialty services offered locally by visiting consultants.
