MercyRockford Sportscores

The Rockford Park District announced Thursday that the naming rights of its Sportscore complexes have been given to MercyRockford.

The complexes will now be called MercyRockford Sportscore 1, located at 1288 Elmwood Rd. in Rockford, and MercyRockford Sportscore 2, located at 8800 E. Riverside Blvd. in Loves Park. The 10-year agreement will total $2 million, with an annual contribution of about $200,000.

“MercyRockford Health System is extremely proud of our work over the years with the Rockford Park District, and we look forward to the opportunity to improve the health and well-being of Rockford area athletes and the community as a whole for years to come,” said Javon Bea, President/CEO of MercyRockford.

Last month, the naming rights to the Sportscore downtown location were given to SwedishAmerican. That downtown Rockford facility will be called the UW Health Sports Factory. It’s set to open in May.
