This 357-bed, nonprofit hospital serves the greater Rockford region, including northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin.  In the late 1990s, the hospital undertook and completed a facility master plan to define and carry out the hospital’s goals for greater operating efficiency.  SGH was the structural engineer for the resulting additions and upgrades, which had several key components, including design and construction of the new Heart and Vascular Center.
