You’re Invited…Join Physicians Circle 2013!

We invite all Rockford Health System physicians, current and retired, to join the Physicians Circle of the Rockford Memorial Development Foundation each year.  Your personal gift to the Foundation of $500 or more during the calendar year not only qualifies you for membership in the Physicians Circle, but also helps support the Rockford Health System mission of “Superior Care.  Every Day.  For All Our Patients.”  Gifts to the Foundation make a difference.  With your gift, you can help: 

  • Support major projects like facilities renovations and equipment purchases – last year we were able to remodel the A2 Mother Baby Unit and unveiled the newly remodeled Adult Critical Care Unit.
  • Fund training to promote medical excellence – in the past year, more than 125 RHS employees attended training that was partially funded through gifts to the Foundation, giving our patients and their families the gift of well-trained clinicians and caregivers.
  • Provide care and comfort items to enhance the experience of our patients and their families.  Gifts to the Foundation provide the “little extras” like blanket warmers, patient education materials, movies and recreational items for those who have extended stays with us.

We sincerely thank the physicians who have been donors to the Foundation in the past, and strongly encourage all physicians to consider charitable giving to the Foundation and membership in the Physicians Circle. 

  • Total gifts of $500 or more during a calendar year qualify physicians for membership in the Physicians Circle. 
  • Annual gifts of $1,000 or more are eligible for recognition at the Triumvirate Recognition Society Dinner.
  • Lifetime total giving of $10,000 or more qualifies for Permanent Triumvirate Membership and inclusion of your name on the beautiful glass donor wall in the hospital lobby. 

Giving is easy…The Rockford Memorial Development Foundation has made it even easier for physicians to achieve their annual membership in the Physicians Circle? Now, you can either:
