A Center of Care on the Prairie

SIU Medicine is based in the capital of Illinois. Springfield is the sixth largest city in the state, with a population of more than 110,000. It’s a historically and ethnically rich American city with a friendly, unpretentious atmosphere. It's the hometown of Abraham Lincoln, the birthplace of the NAACP and has a motherlode of landmarks for the Mother Road, Route 66.

Here you'll find the comforts and convenience of Midwest living, with the amenities and attractions of larger cities, such as St. Louis and Chicago, within easy reach. There are five daily trains traveling to both cities. If you prefer to drive, it’s just three hours (190 miles) to Chicago and 90 minutes (90 miles) to St. Louis.
