We'll help you find a doctor that's right for you.


At SwedishAmerican, we care about your child's health. With this in mind, we offer many different services to keep children well, and to care for them when they get sick.

Primary Care

We have pediatricians on staff at Rock Valley Pediatrics and SAMG/Woodside. The family practice physicians of SwedishAmerican also provide care for children at many other convenient clinic locations.

Immediate Care

When a child needs to see a doctor after hours, immediate care services are offered at two convenient locations: McFarland Road in Rockford (779) 696-9202 and Rockton Road in Roscoe (779) 696-9000. No appointment is needed.

Specialized Care

When children require specialized medical care, SwedishAmerican offers comprehensive pediatric services to meet their medical and surgical needs.

We offer many types of health care for kids, from allergies, ear nose and throat, and digestive care, to sleep disorders, heart care, and a number of different surgeries.

The hospital blends the latest in medical technology with a caring spirit and the expertise of numerous pediatric subspecialty physicians, nurses, dietitians, social workers and technicians. Our medical and nursing staff are highly trained for the unique problems encountered by children.

SwedishAmerican's Special Care Nursery provides the highest degree of care - and the most specialized available - to sick infants and premature babies with very low birth weight.

We realize that hospitalization can be scary for children. With this in mind, we minimize the stress and anxiety your child may experience by encouraging family members to stay the night and participate in the child's care.

Outpatient Services

When it comes to your children's health, you want the very best. SwedishAmerican's experienced pediatricians provide compassionate care to children from birth through adolescence. When specialized care is needed, it's comforting to know that experts from UW Health provide consultations at SwedishAmerican clinics on a regular basis. Appointments are available for several specialties, including: general surgery, plastic surgery, rheumatology, otolaryngology, pulmonology and plastic surgery. For more information call (779) 696-7081.

Safe Kids

Because we realize the importance of child safety, SwedishAmerican Health System leads the Winnebago County Safe Kids Coalition. The coalition is part of the National SAFE KIDS Campaign, the first and only national organization dedicated solely to the prevention of unintentional childhood injury - the number one killer of children ages 14 and under. For more information on the coalition, call (779) 696-6088.
