Giant Rockford Hospital Gets Giant Sign
What appears to be Rockford's biggest hospital is quickly coming to shape (literally) and now they've got the biggest signage in Rockford, too. (And that's a fact,)
There are city ordinances in Rockford typically only allow business signs to be as high as 8 feet high but that won't be the rule for MercyHealth's new women's and children's hospital at Riverside and I-90. City officials voted to approve the hospital's signage to be significantly higher than that, about four times as high, according to WREX.
Citing the importance of helping families find the hospital, alderman voted to give the approval a thumbs up for having two signs higher than the usual rule.
the campus is located on I-90 and will receive patients and families from at least three states. Many of these individuals will be traveling under stressful and critical circumstances.
Mercyhealth's Riverside Blvd/I-90 location opens January 5, 2019.
