Adults and children who need hospital admission are cared for by a “hospitalist” physician at the local hospital they choose with their Crusader provider (Mercyhealth, OSF St. Anthony or SwedishAmerican). After discharge, the Crusader primary care provider (PCP) will continue care at a Crusader facility.
Crusader Women’s Health physicians and midwives are on staff at Mercyhealth Rockford Memorial Hospital Campus. Our outstanding Women’s Health Service staff will deliver your baby at Mercyhealth, the area’s ONLY Level III Perinatal Center (and that’s the highest level).
Certified Nurse Midwives are available for non-complicated daytime deliveries, with back up by Crusader and Mercyhealth obstetricians. Crusader family medicine doctors also deliver babies. Our obstetricians perform C-Sections and do gynecological surgery. Crusader obstetrical providers will provide your primary surgical care at Mercyhealth Rockford Memorial Hospital Campus.
If you go to the Emergency Room, tell the ER staff you are a Crusader patient. Once ER services are provided, you will be referred back to us, along with your records.
