I want to personally welcome you to SwedishAmerican and invite you to discover all that we have to offer. We’ve served northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin for more than a century. Our mission is “Through excellence in healthcare and compassionate service we care for our community.” Here at SwedishAmerican, we strive to deliver the best care each day for all our patients. And as a division of UW Health, we offer patients of all ages convenient local access to leading specialists right here in Rockford.
I’m pleased you visited our website and hope you find it helpful—whether it’s to answer questions about your healthcare, find a medical provider to meet your needs or learn about services available right here.
SwedishAmerican has evolved over the years, but one thing has remained consistent–our commitment to ensuring patients receive personalized and high-quality care. Our medical staff, nurses and entire care team work together to make your experience at SwedishAmerican the best it can be. We’re committed to providing remarkable care to our patients, family members and loved ones as we recognize good health requires a team effort.
I look forward to hearing about your experience at SwedishAmerican either from you directly or through your responses to one of our patient surveys. I offer you my best wishes for good health now and in the future.
