About Mercyhealth

A Passion For Making Lives Better

Mercyhealth is a regional health system with over 700 employed physician partners, five hospitals and 85 primary and specialty care locations throughout 50 northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin communities. We are committed to being a top integrated health care provider and continuously work to make life better for the people, families and communities we serve.

As an integrated health care provider, we provide exceptional, coordinated health care that spans four core service divisions: hospital-based services, clinic-based services, post-acute care and retail services, and a wholly owned insurance company. These four core service divisions make up our comprehensive, vertically integrated delivery system, and integrated delivery is what makes Mercyhealth unique in serving the full range of health care needs for our patients.

1. Hospital-based services:

Mercyhealth offers over 85 specialty and subspecialty services, including orthopedic surgery, prehospital emergency services and training, neurosurgery, heart and vascular services, cancer care, plastic and reconstructive surgery and much more. When time is of the essence, our trauma centers are equipped with the latest technology and highly trained staff to provide immediate, life-saving care. We are a leader in obstetric, neonatal and pediatric services, offering the highest level of care available at our neonatal intensive care unit, caring for the most fragile preemies in the region’s only Small Baby Unit, and serving as a State of Illinois-designated Perinatal Center for an 11-county region.

Our hospitals include:

Effective July 1, 2018 Javon Bea Hospital on the Mercyhealth Riverside campus became the only state-designated children’s hospital in the northern Illinois region. To further enhance our pediatric services, Mercyhealth formed a comprehensive partnership with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to bring super subspecialty pediatric care—for both inpatient hospital and outpatient clinic services—to Rockford. Lurie Children’s is the top-ranked children’s hospital in Illinois, and is ranked the #7 children’s hospital in the nation.
