Dear Health-Care Workers,


As front-line workers serving West Rockford for years, we would like to thank you on behalf of the community of Rockford for your resilience in continuing to provide excellent care to this city, despite Javon Bea’s active attempt to dismantle the healthcare system that has been providing care for decades to this vibrant city. The 9-million dollar CEO, Javon Bea, has been quietly disassembling the hospital system, including closing down the Mental Health facility, Pediatric Services and now more recently deceivingly down-sizing the ER services in Rockton, home to some of the best group of healthcare workers a city could ask for, for his eventual plan to fully close. 


Javon Bea, we will never forget how you made our jobs as healthcare providers almost impossible. I know it angers you to know that we are still saving human lives and ensuring that, despite your reckless actions, we are delivering high quality patient care when they get to finally interact with us face to face, after waiting for over 8 hours in the waiting room -- a wait time you have created intentionally to dissuade our patients from visiting us. You have acted so unethically as to post a sign outside the Emergency Room in Rockton Ave Campus falsely stating a "6 hour wait time" at any given time, even when the waiting room is literally empty. We know this is your desperate attempt in actively trying to manipulate the numbers by chasing patients away to falsely "prove" that West Rockford does not need us, just because you do not deem this community profitable to maintain your 9-million dollar salary. 

Javon Bea, we will never forget how you have not only caused anxiety, pain and in some cases death to this community, but also how you have forced us to absorb this same anxiety, pain and depression. You have exploited our compassion and empathy in the middle of one of the most devastating health crises humanity has seen. Let us do our jobs. 


Javon Bea, we are tired of your ego and your attempt to tone-police by firing those that speak the truth or corner healthcare workers to their resignation. We are tired of your Machiavellian behaviors by strategically lying to the community about your intentions in abandoning them. The community deserves the truth. 


To the vibrant city of Rockford and my fellow healthcare workers, let us stand together and make an example of egotistical hospital CEOs like Javon Bea, who are looking to monetize off of a health-care crisis during a global pandemic in one of the most vulnerable cities in the state. And let’s have the whole nation watch.


If you are a healthcare provider who is currently working for MercyHealth, were previously working for MercyHealth or work in a different hospital system in Rockford and have first-hand experiences of the negligent consequences of Javon Bea’s actions:
