About Mercyhealth

Mercyhealth is a regional health system with seven hospitals and 85 primary and specialty care locations throughout 50 northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin communities.

Every day, our partners take our brand expression—A passion for making lives better—to heart. Our providers, nurses and partners are committed to working together to make lives better for our patients and their families. Touching lives invigorates, inspires and drives us to do our very best, and we continuously look for ways to make every life better.

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.

Hospital-based services

Mercyhealth offers over 125 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. Our new state-of-the-art Javon Bea Hospital–Riverside, which opened in January 2019, is home to the Regional Perinatal Center and northern Illinois’ only state-designated Children’s Hospital in northern Illinois offering the highest level of neonatal services in the region. Our neonatal doctors provide specialized care in our 52-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit, and our highest level Small Baby Unit, one of the first in Illinois, caring for babies born less than 30 weeks’ gestation.
