August 13, 02021
PEORIA (25 NEWS) - OSF Healthcare has released system-wide numbers on COVID-19 patients being treated in their hospitals.
The data covers 14 of their 15 hospitals in Illinois and Michigan.
An OSF spokesperson says the only hospital not included in the count is their Princeton location, as it was just recently acquired by the provider.
OSF says those 14 hospitals are currently treating 103 COVID-19 patients. Of those, 18 patients were already vaccinated, which is roughly 17% of the total.
31 of those patients are being treated in Intensive Care Units within the OSF system. Of that number, two are vaccinated, which is roughly 6% of the total ICU patients.
Lastly, a dozen OSF COVID-19 patients are on ventilators. All of those people are unvaccinated, according to the chart from OSF.
This is the first time OSF has released hospitalization data during the pandemic. Hospitalization information has previously only been released by local health departments.
OSF has not released COVID-19 hospitalization data specific to individual hospitals, such as St. Francis in Peoria or St. Joseph in Bloomington.
