SwedishAmerican relocating Rockford immediate care services
Tuesday, Feb. 4, SwedishAmerican Medical Group will relocate immediate care services in Rockford from its Brookside clinic (North Alpine and Guilford roads) to a newer, more patient-friendly facility at 2473 McFarland Road, about 3.5 miles east of the existing clinic.
Near Franchesco’s Ristorante, the new SwedishAmerican Immediate Care offers separate waiting areas for immediate care, laboratory, radiology, and occupational medicine services; more spacious exam rooms; better working space for staff; and closer parking.
“We are excited to offer more modern accommodations to our patients,” said Noel Nickel, SwedishAmerican’s director of primary care operations. “By relocating, we are able to provide a higher level of service.”
SwedishAmerican Immediate Care offers treatment for minor injuries and illnesses seven days a week with no appointment. In addition to offering medical care for infants, children and adults, the clinic provides quality occupational medicine services to businesses. Call (815) 391-7800.
