SI Now is a new initiative designed to attract businesses and residents to Southern Illinois.

SI Now recently launched to showcase Southern Illinois as a great place to live, work and do business. 

It’s a collaboration of leaders in business, healthcare, government, education and more in Illinois’ 17 southern-most counties.

Southern Illinois Healthcare President and CEO Rex Budde says communities working together will make it easier to compete against larger areas to attack new businesses and jobs. 

“Southern Illinois has a tremendous amount to offer and when we sell the region and we’re united and we can show all the things when we combine them together, it just makes more sense that way and it gives us a chance to really show what we’re all about.”

SI-NOW’s main goal is create economic growth in the area.
