June 1, 2011

SwedishAmerican Health System has acquired Rock Valley Women's Health Center, which is now known as SwedishAmerican Medical Group/Rock Valley Women’s Health Center. Patients will continue to receive care from their same physicians at 6861 Villagreen View in northeast Rockford.

David Stephenson, M.D., FACOG; and Lee Sesslar, M.D., FACOG. With more than 50 years of combined experience, they offer comprehensive women's health services—from pregnancy care to gynecological issues to menopause.

According to Dr. Bill Gorski, President and CEO for SwedishAmerican, “We are pleased to have Rock Valley Women's Health Center become part of SwedishAmerican. They have an excellent reputation throughout the community, and will be a natural fit as we build on our strong commitment to area women.”

Dr. Bruce Jasper of Rock Valley Women's Health Center stated, "Our physicians are looking forward to a strong working relationship with SwedishAmerican Health System, which has a reputation for offering high-quality care to area women."
