About Our Program
The Occupational Health Program at Rochelle Community Hospital was begun in 1993. It started as a way to provide healthcare services to our local employers in a cost-efficient manner, utilizing the services we already had in place at RCH. Most of our area employers cannot afford to staff a company nurse, so in many cases, our occupational health program functions in that role.
To date, we have provided Occupational Health Services to over 160 area employers, including those located in Rochelle, Ashton, Creston, Lee, Amboy, Sublette and DeKalb. We have also put together a Random Drug and Alcohol Testing Program for area trucking companies, along with farmers and township supervisors to help them meet the requirements of the Department of Transportation at a low cost. We have set up a program to provide care and follow-up of work-related injuries at cost discounts to the employers.
In November of 2002, we opened a clinic that provides nothing but Occupational Health Services at the Rochelle Travel Plaza. This location was chosen based on the fact that over 2 million people visit this facility annually. Many of them fall under the Department of Transportation requirements to have random drug and alcohol testing, as well as physicals every two years.
With the arrival of more industry in Rochelle, we only expect our business to grow and prosper. With the warehousing industries that are planned for this area, we anticipate more transportation businesses that will benefit from our services.
Examples of some of the services we provide include:
On-site Educational Classes include...
Drug testing and fingerprinting can be done on a walk-in basis. Appointments are required for physicals. If you have any questions regarding our services or to make an appointment, please call 815-562-2682.
