Swedish American Health System in Rockford IL
ServicesPatients & VisitorsFacilitiesPhysicians & ClinicsJobsQualityAbout Us


For more than a century, SwedishAmerican Health System has grown with Rockford and the larger northern Illinois region. Through the struggles and contributions of countless individuals, and the pioneering efforts of early medical professionals, our health system has evolved into the leading organization it is today.

There are many ways we'll be telling our centennial story. In addition to the history section of our Web site, we encourage you to visit our hospital campus and explore the fascinating exhibits at our new Museum and Heritage Center.

In addition, our 200-page history book, It Began with a Dollar, is available for purchase at our hospital gift shops. It tells the story of SwedishAmerican’s first 100 years through stunning photos and intriguing stories.

Although the treatments and technologies have changed since we first opened our doors, our commitment has not. Today, we are just as devoted to the alleviation of sickness and suffering as we were at the time of our founding.
