Carle Foundation Hospital (Urbana, Ill.). Thanks to Margaret Burt Carle Morris' $40,000 gift to the City of Urbana, Ill., Carle Foundation Hospital got its start in 1918. Today, the hospital is part of an integrated healthcare network owned by the nonprofit Carle Foundation. 

Carle-Foundation-Hospital-FactsThe Carle Foundation network includes the Mills Breast Cancer Institute, Carle Cancer Center, Carle Spine Institute, Carle Heart and Vascular Institute and Carle Physician Group, an outpatient practice made up of more than 350 physicians in 50 specialties. Carle Foundation Hospital was named one of America's Best Hospitals for 2014 by Healthgrades, the only hospital in Illinois outside of the Chicago metro area to earn that distinction.
