Step 2
Once Medical Staff Services receives your request form you will receive two separate email notices (one with the link to the online application website and one with your username and password).
Step 3
Complete and submit the online application and upload any supporting documentation (licenses, malpractice coverage, etc.). When you have submitted the online application, Medical Staff Services will populate the Illinois State Credentialing Application with the information you provided. The Illinois State Credentialing Application and the privilege request form(s) will then be sent to you for your signature.
Step 4
You may scan and email the application, privilege request form and any other required documentation you did not upload when you complete your online application to Medical Staff Services.  You may also fax these items to (217) 525-5673 (St. John's), (217) 464-3144 (St. Mary's) or (217) 324-8670 (St. Francis and Good Shepherd).
