OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony Medical Center

OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony Medical Center is a 241-bed tertiary care facility with all private rooms on a 100-acre campus in Rockford serving patients from a 10-county area.

As a Level I Trauma Center, which includes the only Regional Burn Center, OSF Saint Anthony is the place to go when time matters and the complexity of injury or medical condition requires immediate attention and treatment by experienced and dedicated medical professionals.

OSF Saint Anthony is also the region’s first Comprehensive Stroke Center, with a dedicated neuroscience intensive care unit for stroke and aneurysm patients, including on-site neurosurgery available 24/7 with the ability to perform complex neurovascular procedures.

Their cardiology program, including OSF Cardiovascular Institute, has earned a three-star rating from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and is the only medical center in the region performing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) surgery for patients with aortic stenosis who are at high risk with a standard valve replacement procedure. They also perform the “Watchman” procedure, a catheter-delivered device that helps reduce the risk of stroke in atrial fibrillation patients who can’t tolerate blood thinners.

Additionally, OSF HealthCare Saint Anthony has the Patricia D. Pepe Center for Cancer Care, with oncology services certified by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative and accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. The cancer center’s radiation department has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation as a result from a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

In addition, this health system offers the OSF Illinois Neurological Institute; OSF Medical Group, including OSF Surgical Group, the largest multi-specialty group in the region; Endocrinology; Center for Sports Medicine & Health Fitness; and leading-edge orthopedic services.

Since 2005, OSF Saint Anthony has been a Magnet-designated hospital, the highest recognition for nursing excellence in the U.S., awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association.

In 2018, a 144,000-square-foot expansion of the medical center was opened. It has allowed OSF Saint Anthony to become an all-private patient room hospital. The new addition also includes a PromptCare, a retail pharmacy, expanded women’s services including a rejuvenation center, plus a demonstration kitchen.

OSF HealthCare is an integrated health system owned and operated by The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, headquartered in Peoria, Ill. OSF HealthCare employs more than 21,500 Mission Partners (employees) in 135 locations, including 13 hospitals – nine acute care, four critical access – and two colleges of nursing. Its physician network employs nearly 1,500 primary care, specialist physicians and advanced practice providers.


Mercyhealth is a regional, vertically integrated health system with seven hospitals and 85 primary and specialty care locations throughout 50 northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin communities. It has more than 8,000 employee partners and more than 850 employed physician partners who take care of roughly 2.4 million people every year.

As an integrated health care provider, Mercyhealth provides 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 its comprehensive, vertically integrated delivery system, and integrated delivery is what makes Mercyhealth unique in serving the full range of health care needs for its patients.

Mercyhealth offers over 125 specialty and subspecialty services, including orthopedic surgery, prehospital emergency service and training, neurosurgery, heart and vascular services, cancer care, and plastic and reconstructive surgery. Its trauma centers are equipped with the latest technology and highly trained staff to provide immediate, life-saving care.

Mercyhealth is a leader in obstetric, neonatal and pediatric services. The new, state-of-the-art Javon Bea Hospital-Riverside, which opened in January 2019, is home to northern Illinois’ only state-designated Children’s Hospital, as well as a Regional Perinatal Center. It houses more than 55 pediatric and neonatal doctors who provide the highest level of care in the region. Javon Bea Hospital-Riverside includes a 52-bed neonatal intensive care unit, small baby unit as well as pediatric intensive care unit. It is only one of 10 Pediatric Critical Care Centers, and one of only six Level II Pediatric Critical Care Centers in Illinois. The facility also holds a Level I trauma center, state-of-the-art surgical suites and specialty care for people of all ages.

Mercyhealth continues to provide comprehensive care at its Javon Bea Hospital and Physician Clinic-Rockton, which has been open since 1885. Patients can find primary, specialty and emergency/trauma care at this flagship facility.

Mercyhealth is putting the finishing touches on renovations at the Javon Bea Hospital-Rockton Avenue campus. The approximately $70 million project includes:

  • Water remediation work that includes re-grading, creating more green space, and constructing a second, larger retention pond, which will be located along Lawndale Avenue.
  • A modernized surgical prep and recovery area
  • A makeover of its ICU and Medical/Surgical units
  • The addition of a 17-bed Sub-Acute Care Unit
  • A newer, modernized look to the majority of the hospital’s private rooms, nurses stations, hallways and more.

The phased renovations have been underway since late 2019 and did not disrupt patient care or services.

Mercyhealth donated two residential properties on Lawndale Avenue to the Northwest Rockford Redevelopment Corporation (NRRC). Created in 2016, the NRRC’s mission includes the purchase, rehabilitation and sale to owner-occupants of as many properties as possible within a residential area of concern. NRRC identifies its area of concern in northwest Rockford as being bounded on the east by Main Street, on the west by Kilburn Avenue, on the north by Halsted Street and on the south by Custer Avenue. This area encompasses approximately 120 city square blocks and includes Mercyhealth’s Javon Bea Hospital-Rockton Avenue campus. Therefore, Mercyhealth donated two residential properties on Lawndale Avenue to NRCC, who will be renovating an additional Mercyhealth Lawndale Avenue property.

In December 2019 Mercyhealth attained Magnet recognition again, as an entire, integrated system – a testament to its continued dedication to high-quality nursing practice. The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program distinguishes health care organizations that meet rigorous standards for nursing excellence. This credential is the highest national honor for professional nursing practice. Mercyhealth is one of a few organizations in the nation to have received Magnet for its entire health care system including all components of its organization, all of its hospitals, clinics, specialties, home health and hospice. Achieving Magnet recognition inspired every member of the Mercyhealth team to achieve excellence for patients every day. It is this commitment to providing high-quality care that will continue to push Mercyhealth to maintain Magnet recognition.

UI Health L.P. Johnson Family Health Center

Since 1971, when local physician LeBaron “L.P.” Johnson partnered with the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) to start a residency program in Rockford, the University of Illinois College of Medicine-Rockford has trained doctors in the specialty of family medicine.

The University of Illinois College of Medicine-Rockford’s Family Medicine Residency Program is located in the UI Health L.P. Johnson Family Health Center at 1221 E. State St. in Rockford, named for its first and long-term program director, Dr. L.P. Johnson.

Here, new medical doctors in the program, called resident physicians, spend three years practicing family medicine and learning more about the many facets of this field. They work under the guidance of attending physicians who are UIC professors of family medicine. These primary care providers are the first contact for health concerns and work as partners with patients to address most health care needs.

These resident physicians and attending physicians are part of a health care team that includes nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, behavioral health specialists, a clinical pharmacist and other staff members. This team provides care to patients of all ages and stages of life at this unique family health center.

From general wellness visits and school physicals to minor procedures, care for chronic conditions, women’s health services and care for non-emergency illnesses and injuries, the UI Health L.P. Johnson Family Health Center proudly provides a wide range of services to help patients get healthy and stay healthy.

Patients who see doctors at the UI Health L.P. Johnson Family Health Center can get care followed by the UI Health team if they are admitted to SwedishAmerican Hospital. All pregnant patients deliver their babies at SwedishAmerican. The UI Health team can attend to mother and baby in the hospital and provide ongoing care throughout their next phases of life.

Our referral department also works closely with Mercyhealth, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center and other health care specialists for patients who need specialty care or hospitalization as their insurance allows.
Medicare, Medicaid Managed Care and most insurance plans are accepted.
