ROCHELLE — On Wednesday, Mark Batty, RCH Chief Executive Officer of Rochelle Community Hospital, hosted the second of two presentations for area residents to hear an update on the hospital’s technological advances, increased services and regional role.
“There are miracles that happen every day in our building,” stated Mark Batty during Wednesday’s luncheon. “It is extremely important that we are in town and the building says Rochelle Community Hospital. It is our mission to meet the health care needs of area residents.”
Batty explained that RCH is considered a critical access hospital— a smaller community hospital that offers 24/7 emergency service, has 25 or less inpatient beds and has an average length stay of four days or less. RCH is called a critical access hospital because it is in a rural area and provides quick access to a hospital facility.
