The Peoria Medical Society was organized in 1848 and is the oldest continuous county medical society in Illinois. Its outstanding achievement has been a real benefit to the development of organized medicine in this state and in the mid-west.

Mission Statement

"The purpose of the Peoria Medical Society is to promote the health and general welfare of the public; to respect and protect the rights and interests of the medical profession; to encourage the development and dissemination of knowledge as it pertains to all the branches of the art and science of medicine; to unite the physicians of Peoria County, IL; to cultivate a true fraternal spirit among physicians; and to participate in organized medicine on both the state and national levels."


Physicians, hospitals, liability insurers and patients rallied around solutions to Illinois’ access to medical care crisis, calling for passage of a bipartisan bill to repair our state’s broken litigation system and “Keep Doctors in Illinois." At the February 1, 2005 news conference held in Chicago and Springfield, legislation was introduced that would address the crisis.
