Thinking Outside the box: OSF HealthCare and TEKMILL Partner to Take Innovative Health Care Products from Concept to Reality
Date:2/13/2017

Imagine a space where great minds come together to help turn innovative ideas into fully implemented products. This scenario is becoming reality now that OSF Saint Francis, Inc. has joined forces with TEKMILL and become a shareholder in the company.

TEKMILL is a contract design engineering, rapid prototyping and small-scale manufacturing company located in Champaign, Illinois on the campus of the University of Illinois Research Park. TEKMILL helps its clients refine their innovative ideas, create conceptual prototypes and realize high quality products.

“For anyone who has ever scribbled on a napkin to try to show a friend or colleague an idea, our engineers and machinists can take that idea, build a prototype, test it and produce any quantity needed,” said Gary Durack, CEO of the TEKMILL. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with OSF, given its Mission and strong strategic approach to health care innovation.”

OSF HealthCare owns OSF Saint Francis, Inc., which is comprised of health care-related businesses. Michelle Conger, Chief Strategy Officer for OSF HealthCare and Jeff White, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for OSF Saint Francis, Inc. will now serve on the TEKMILL Board of Directors.

“Our partnership with TEKMILL will enable us to extend our Ministry and our Mission by investing in products that will improve patient care and lower costs,” said Kevin Schoeplein, Chief Executive Officer at OSF HealthCare. “Together, we can make health care easier, faster and more connected.”

The remaining TEKMILL shares are held by the Durack, Fox and Rauschenberger families.
