Mercy Health System and Rockford Health System merged in 2015 to create Mercyheath, a multi-regional, vertically integrated, not-for-profit multi-regional health system comprising five hospitals, a wholly-owned insurance company, more than 867 physicians (561 employed physicians), and 80 outpatient clinics and other service sites that provide care to residents in more 60 communities in 15 northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin counties. We provide over 75 specialty and sub-specialty specialty services, including neonatal intensive care, pediatric and adult critical care, trauma care, neurosurgery, heart and vascular care, cancer care, plastic and reconstructive surgery, da Vinci robotic surgery and much more. Together, we form a remarkably strong, agile and well-rounded system that enhances the health care services for the region.
In November 2015, we were given approval to build a specialty referral hospital at Riverside Blvd. and I-90 in Rockford. This campus will feature a women’s and children’s hospital with neonatal and pediatric intensive care, pediatric emergency services and high risk maternity care. It will also offer 188 private medical/surgical, ICU, pediatrics and obstetrics rooms, a level 1 trauma center, operating suites, comprehensive diagnostic services, a variety of specialty care services, and comprehensive heart services. Groundbreaking is expected to take place in April 2016, with completion slated for 2019.
