The best hospital care, no matter where you live

Delivering more services and better care to all of Rockford.


With nearly $1 billion in investment in the Rockford area, it can be hard to keep up on Mercyhealth’s many service offerings. Here you can see what hospital and clinic services are offered on our two campuses. From the Rockton Avenue campus neighborhood to Riverside Boulevard, we’ve got Rockford covered.

Javon Bea Hospital and Physician Clinic—Rockton

This campus has grown by leaps and bounds over the past two years. We are committed to modernize this 626,000-square-foot hospital and expand services on this campus.

Orthopedic Institute: Our $5 million investment in a new 22-room facility included new x-ray technology, two cast rooms, and a new waiting area and furnishings. With this new investment, Mercyhealth welcomed several new adult orthopedic surgeons and one pediatric surgeon to provide orthopedic care for all ages. The orthopedic physicians each specialize in a variety of treatments and surgeries, including sports medicine, joint replacement, hand surgery and trauma surgery.

Chemotherapy Infusion Center: A $1 million expansion to Mercyhealth Cancer Center-Rockford added 10 rooms and additional space for family members, created a more patient-friendly and convenient entrance, and decreased wait times.

Diagnostic Robotic Laboratory: Our $1 million investment in state-of-the-art robotic laboratory equipment eases the burden on patients and produces faster results. Mercyhealth is the first Rockford hospital to use this type of equipment.

State-of-the-Art Helipad: A new $660,000 helipad allows for faster, safer patient transportation in the most delicate of emergency situations.

Prehospital and Emergency Services Center: Our 16,500-square-foot training facility offers paramedic and emergency medical technician (EMT) certification and ongoing training, as well as American Heart Association-approved CPR classes, first aid classes, casualty care training, and other training for health care professionals. It is also the home base for the MD-1 Emergency Response Program and Mercyhealth REACT.
