Need help? Finding the right providers for you and your family is an important step in ensuring your best health.

Many of our specialty care offices require a referral from primary care for your initial visit, so if you're already an FHN patient you may need to contact your primary care provider for more information. If you're new to FHN or don't have a primary care provider, call us at 815-599-7060 and you'll have a primary care appointment before you hang up the phone!* Thank you for choosing FHN!
