“With little to no guidance, Savannah has taken the IMH brand and made it what it is today. She is always willing to take on any project and continuously exceeds expectations!”

Savannah graduated from Illinois State University with a BA in Graphic Design and Arts Technology. She has always had a passion for the arts and discovered the digital side when she went to college. When she first applied at IMH, Savannah was just going to back to work after having her daughter. She saw an opening for a position in scheduling and with no real options for graphic design close to home, she jumped on the opportunity and applied. However, after interviewing for the position it was decided that her talents would clearly be better suited in Marketing! In May of 2017 IMH hired their first graphic designer and in that short time Savannah has helped to breathe new life into the IMH brand and image. Any advertisements, billboards, artwork, or branded images you see associated with Iroquois Memorial Hospital or it’s affiliates today have most likely been produced by Savannah!

Savannah grew up all over – everywhere from Colorado and Pennsylvania to New York and Georgia – she even studied abroad in Italy for college. However, her family is originally from Champaign area. After graduation, she moved back and that is where she met her husband Ryan. Ryan and his family are originally from Sheldon, thus bringing her to the area to raise her family. She and Ryan now live in Watseka with their two year old daughter, Olivia, and two dogs, Beau and Beckham. Although, she loves the activities and things to do in the bigger cities, she said she definitely prefers small town living -mostly because of the peace and quiet. When Savannah is not at work she enjoys spending time with her family. She is very creative and often has fun making DIY projects. She also enjoys tending to her gardens – she has both a flower garden and a vegetable garden.

When we asked Savannah what she enjoys most about being a part of the IMH family she said, “I really love the positive friendly atmosphere. I also love my job, I get to spend my day working on creative projects and really making a difference. It makes me feel good to help promote IMH in a positive way and help the community see all of the amazing things we do here!” Her positive attitude, attention to detail, and excellent work is hailed throughout the hospital and our communities. Her nomination as Superstar comes as no surprise!

From all of us at IMH, Savannah thank you for your commitment to excellency and IMH! You are a true Superstar in Healthcare!

Savannah Burton
