About Our Name

People often ask us about the meaning behind the name SwedishAmerican, which dates back to our origins in the early twentieth century.

In March 1911, Mr. O.F. Nilson wrote a letter to the editor of the Swedish newspaper, Svenska Posten, challenging every Swede in Rockford to donate one dollar per year for the construction of a new hospital. By June of that year, the SwedishAmerican Hospital Association received a charter of incorporation and the hospital opened in 1918.
