My name is Michael Bergman, MD. I’m the Critical Care Program Medical Director for Franciscan Health Olympia Fields, located in Olympia Fields, IL.  I’ve been a part of Sound for 4 years. I’m proud of the intensivist practice we are building at Franciscan Health Olympia Fields and welcome interest from critical care-trained physicians coming out of training or looking to make a career change to explore our group and our practice.  I would like to share more about who we are and what we do — specifically about our people, practice, and purpose — as you consider your options:


  • We are a team of 4 intensivist physicians providing on-site day coverage in the 32-bed ICU with medical, surgical, and cardiovascular patients.
  • Our intensivists have a diverse mix of clinical practice time.
  • Nights are covered by Sound tele-ICU and onsite critical care fellows.
  • Within the hospital, we work closely with the multi-disciplinary team within the unit to collaboratively care for patients.
  • Olympia Fields is a southern suburb of Chicago located 25 miles from Chicago in Cook County.  Olympia Fields is a safe, quiet community with numerous parks and above average ranking public schools. Most of the 5,000+ residents in Olympia Fields own their own homes.  Olympia Fields is home to two award-winning, tournament-quality championship golf courses including the prestigious Olympia Fields County Golf Club, founded in 1915 and host to PGA tournaments


  • Franciscan Health Olympia Fields is a 375-bed, acute care teaching hospital with a comprehensive internal medicine residency and an ACGME-accredited critical care fellowship program.  The teaching environment fosters the hospital culture of continued learning and research.

  • We work in EPIC, with access to our own internal informatics platform.
  • Full-time physicians work an average of 15 shifts per month, block shift schedule, generally in 4-5 day stretches. Part-time and per diem (PRN) physicians are scheduled as needed and available.  We work together to manage the schedule as equitably as possible providing intensivists with a great work/family life balance.
