Marilyn Balch Named September High Performer

Congratulations to Marilyn Balch who was named the High Performer for September.  Marilyn is our Family Nurse Practitioner at our Ashton Clinic and has been employed at RCH for 12 years.

“Marilyn Balch accepts challenge as a Family Nurse Practitioner at our Ashton Family Health Center every day.  Despite the distance, she cheerfully steps in to cover shifts at our other clinics at a moment’s notice.

Marilyn’s experience as a critical care nurse in Rockford for many years, in addition to her knowledge as an instructor at St. Anthony’s School of Nursing is invaluable to our organization. 

She comes to Rochelle to attend and promote as many RCH functions as her schedule allows.  Having lived in Ashton all of her life, she is a great ambassador for our hospital and in her community.  Healthcare takes heart and Marilyn’s heart is dedicated to her patients and Rochelle Community Hospital 24/7.  She exemplifies the meaning of High Performer.”
