At Mercyhealth Women’s Center, passion drives everything we do to deliver medical excellence with a compassionate touch to everyone who walks through our doors. Passion inspires our doctors, nurses, technicians and support staff to do whatever it takes to make you feel better and keep you well. Nothing is ever too small or taken for granted. Everything matters. Every little thing.
We are intimately aware of what women want and need to help them through all life’s stages. Our fellowship trained, board certified doctors, nurse practitioners and expert support staff understand the challenges women face, the roles they juggle, and the care they require to support a healthy, balanced life.
The clinical breast program in Rockford has been granted a three-year, full accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), an elite branch of the American College of Surgeons. Now a designated breast center, Mercyhealth is one of 500 breast programs in the world, and the only one in Rockford, to receive this seal of approval.
This accreditation is our promise to all breast patients in our community that we have and will continuously strive to provide a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach to address all their breast health needs. Our breast care team includes dedicated fellowship trained physicians, as well as a team of nurse navigators, clinical psychologist, clinical dietician, lymphedema therapist, genetic counselor and case manager, all of whom work together to provide our patients and their families with all facets of care. With a team coordinating your care, we will walk with you every step in your journey.
For established patients, we offer facials, back treatments, hand and foot rejuvenation, wax treatments and brow and lash tinting with an aesthetician. Massages are also available the day of your scheduled appointment. Please ask the Patient Service Representative for more information when scheduling your appointment or during the check-in/check-out process. The services are not available to patients currently receive chemotherapy, pregnant patients, patients with an indwelling catheter and/or drains or patients on continuous oxygen.
