Children's Medical Center
The Children’s Medical Center at Rockford Health System offers the most advanced care for newborns and children in the region. In 2006, we were recognized by the Illinois Department of Public Health as a Pediatric Critical Care Center. This new distinction makes us one of only eight hospitals in Illinois recognized for providing the highest level of specialized critical care and emergency care services to children.
At Rockford Memorial Hospital, you’ll find the region’s only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. The physicians at the hospital, including neonatalogists, hospitalists, and intensivists, are specifically trained to care for hospitalized children. They’ll work with your child’s pediatrician, as well as a variety of specialists, to get your child back to good health.
