The establishment of Bloomington's Mennonite Hospital dates to 1919. By 1940, the hospital operated a nursing home and a nursing college. In 1981, Mennonite merged with Brokaw Hospital in Normal to become BroMenn Medical Center. It was later part of the Illinois and Wisconsin-based Advocate Aurora Health Care system. In 2020, BroMenn was acquired by Carle Health hospital.
