Pediatric Specialties

Children aren’t just small adults. They face many unique health care needs and challenges that require the special skills of board certified pediatricians with specialty training. And, when issues arise, you need this care close to home for pediatric specialties.

Mercyhealth offers a wide variety of pediatric specialty care for your children. If your child needs care that goes above and beyond the usual pediatrics checkup or ER visit, you can count on us to take the best care of their specific health needs.

With our new partnership with Ann & Richard H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, we now offer even more pediatric specialists, both clinic and hospital, right here in Rockford.

On July 1, 2018, Mercyhealth became the only state-designated children’s hospital in northern Illinois. Mercyhealth earned this designation from the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services because of the wide range of children’s services we offer that meet their stringent standards.
