As the second largest Federally Qualified Health Center network in Illinois, SIHF Healthcare operates more than 30 health centers in the region. SIHF Healthcare in Bunker Hill, Ill. offers Family Medicine and OB/GYN services. It is located at 144 N. Washington Street. In recognition of NHCW, the health center is hosting a raffle that will benefit the Bunker Hill Volunteer Fire Department.

“At SIHF Healthcare in Bunker Hill, my team and I are committed to providing our patients with compassionate, quality care,” said Carey Runde, health center manager of SIHF Healthcare – Bunker Hill. “The Bunker Hill Volunteer Fire Department shares our mission to serve the community, and they go above and beyond to protect the people who call Bunker Hill home.
