Renewed commitment to the Crusader Mission!

Patient Focused. Mission Driven. Financially Sound.

Crusader Community Health’s mission is to serve the Rock River Valley area with quality primary health care for all people in need. Crusader serves over 59,000 patients which is about 20 percent of the area’s population.

Crusader serves patients at eight locations: four in Rockford (West State, Broadway, Alpine Road and Auburn High School); one in Belvidere; one in Loves Park; and two in South Beloit.

Crusader has consistently received accreditation from The Joint Commission since 1999 for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients, including infection prevention and control, leadership and medication management. Founded in 1972, Crusader Community Health is one of 1,200 Community Health Centers (CHC) in the United States. Nationally, CHCs offer over 7,000 sites and serve almost 22 million patients.
