ROCKFORD- Mayor Tom McNamara joined board members, leadership and employees of SwedishAmerican along with contractors, community leaders and representatives of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce Thursday to cut the ribbon on the new SwedishAmerican Creekside Clinic at 3505 N. Bell School Road.
The four-story $24 million building includes 70,000 square feet, 100 clinical rooms, X-ray and lab services and more than 30 providers in internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics and OB/GYN. The facility will serve as a convenient location for UW Health pediatric specialists who travel from Madison for appointments in Rockford with SwedishAmerican patients.
“SwedishAmerican is proud to offer expanded services to our patients with the opening of the Creekside
Medical Center,” SwedishAmerican President and CEO Dr. Michael Born said. “Creekside represents the
largest medical group clinic that SwedishAmerican has opened to date. It’s a state-of-the-art facility
designed specifically to provide an improved experience for both our patients and our providers.”
The clinic is next to the SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center. The organization opened its Riverwest Clinic earlier this year on Marchesano Drive and is set to open another clinic on North Main Street later this year.
“Any mayor enjoys cutting ribbons,” McNamara said. “However, what I enjoy more is being a partner with an organization that is truly dedicated to doing what is best for the entire community. This clinic continues a strategy for SwedishAmerican that delivers leading-edge care to our residents no matter where they live, work or play.”
