The SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center offers state-of-the-art treatment and support services to more cancer patients in northern Illinois than any other health system. Our award-winning cancer program includes an outpatient cancer center, which offers advanced treatments under one roof and care that is coordinated by the region’s top specialists.
As a division of UW Health, SwedishAmerican offers access to oncology experts from the nationally recognized University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center. Cancer patients have benefited from the availability of surgeons who work in highly specialized areas. Through the UW Health Multispecialty Surgical Oncology Clinic, located within the SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center, patients now have convenient local access to UW Health specialists in areas such as breast cancer, head-and-neck cancer, endocrine cancer, and thoracic surgical and abdominal surgical oncology.
For individuals with rare cancers, treatments also are offered locally whenever possible. Oncologists from SwedishAmerican and UW Health work collaboratively in many ways, including participating in multidisciplinary clinics, sharing access to patient medical records, following consistent treatment protocols and participating in community events.
The philosophy of SwedishAmerican's Regional Cancer Center is to provide compassionate, supportive, comprehensive cancer care for our community. In addition to providing preventative strategies to those who are well, the center offers oncology education to patients, families and other regional healthcare providers.
At SwedishAmerican, patients benefit from the region's largest number of oncology physicians and a nationally certified staff of nurses, radiation therapists, physicists, social workers, pharmacists, chaplains, and dieticians who work together to provide a unique team approach to cancer care.
Located on N. Bell School Road in Rockford, in close proximity to I-90 and the Riverside exit, the SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center offers outpatient services such as medical oncology, chemotherapy and infusion; advanced radiation therapy; and medical imaging at one convenient location. Patients have access to the latest clinical trials offered by the UW Carbone Cancer Center. In addition, a full complement of holistic and support services ensures the very best treatment experience.
