SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center now UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center Rockford
ROCKFORD, Ill. – Several more UW Health facilities in Rockford have received new names and signage.
Among them, and one of the more visible changes, is SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center officially became UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center Rockford, Aug. 1.
This aligns the center name with UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center in Madison, Wis., Carbone Cancer Center has been a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center for 50 years, with a strong history of groundbreaking research and innovative treatment. As one of the top five cancer centers in the nation for research funding, Carbone has more than 250 clinical trials ongoing at any given time. In 2006, the cancer center was named after Dr. Paul P. Carbone, who led the center for almost 20 years.
This gives the Rockford community more direct access to one of the top cancer centers in the country, according to Travis Andersen, chief executive officer, UW Health in northern Illinois.
“Not only will our patients continue to have access to the high quality, compassionate care they expect from us, but they now have the added benefit of easier access to hundreds of clinical trials and experts at a top academic medical center,” he said.
Updated names do not affect operations or appointments, and patients have been contacted about the changes through MyChart. Updates to items inside UW Health buildings, such as flyers, and patient communications like after-visit summaries are underway.
Three other clinics also underwent these updates on Aug. 1: SwedishAmerican Creekside Medical Center is now UW Health N Bell School Rd Medical Center, SwedishAmerican Stateline Clinic is now UW Health Roscoe Clinic and SwedishAmerican Valley Clinic is now UW Health Newburg Rd Clinic. Previous name updates in northern Illinois are listed below. More clinic name updates are scheduled for September and October.
This work is part of a facility naming project that began in Wisconsin last year, which included new names for almost 40 facilities.
