Hospital, OSF enter arrangement

Published: Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

ROCHELLE – Rochelle Community Hospital and OSF Healthcare System recently entered into a network affiliation agreement.

This new collaboration will establish a more clinically-integrated health care delivery system for patients. Both have worked together with shared services for many years. OSF physicians specializing in cardiology and hematology/oncology have been seeing patients weekly at RCH’s Multi-Specialty Center for more than 10 years.

RCH, at 900 N. Second St., will retain independence as a locally-governed community hospital with sole responsibility for hospital administration.

Through this agreement, both parties anticipate an opportunity for sharing resources resulting in more cost-effective delivery of health care services.

For more information, call RCH at 815-562-3113.
