A Rockford hospital system is expanding…and the project is being called one of the biggest capital projects in the city’s history.
MercyRockford Health System has only existed since January...that’s when Rockford Health System and Janesville, Wisconsin-based Mercy Health System merged. Now the health care provider is moving forward with a massive project: a $400-million makeover. And that means building a new hospital on Rockford’s far northeast side, focusing on women and children. It will also be a high level trauma center.
