favorite About KSB

Who We Are

Katherine Shaw Bethea Hospital is a not-for-profit, independent healthcare provider located in Dixon, Illinois. We’re known as KSB Hospital, or simply KSB, to our community. We first opened our doors in 1897, when Judge Solomon Bethea gave his entire estate for the creation of a hospital in honor of his late wife Katherine. If you’re a history buff and would like to learn more about our interesting past, head over to our Wikipedia entry.

The world has changed in great ways since we got our start, but our mission of serving the healthcare needs of the community has remained constant. In order to fulfill our mission, Katherine Shaw Bethea Hospital has grown and evolved into today’s acute care hospital, our regional network of primary care clinics, and a multi-specialty physician group.  Each year we reinvest in technology, facilities, and our employees in order to continue to meet the changing healthcare needs of our hometowns.
