The Rockford Memorial Development Foundation is pleased to share with you “Hometown Wishes,” our annual Wishbook of care and comfort items. 

As you browse through this year’s edition, we hope you will enjoy the inspiring photographs taken by area photographers of scenes in the northern Illinois region.  Each one captures a slice of the incredible beauty that surrounds us and helps define what makes our hometown special and unique.  Among the public spaces, landscapes and buildings are the people who live and work here.  We are reminded of the caring and generous spirit rooted in Midwestern values, the friendliness, sense of belonging, and dedication to caring for one another. 

Our commitment at Rockford Health System is to continue to provide excellent medical care to our patients and to exceed their expectations for their overall experience.  Often it’s the little extras, like the items funded through Wishbook, that can make a big difference for patients and families.  This holiday season, we invite you to make a Wishbook gift – either to fund a “Wish” from a specific area, or simply to be used where needed most.  In turn, we will ask our departments for their needs and wish use donor gifts to make wishes come true throughout the new year.  On behalf of the many patients and families who will benefit, thank you for your generosity.
