It’s understandable in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic the last few months, making an appointment to see your healthcare provider for a preventive screening probably wasn’t one of your top priorities. The thing is, preventative care is tremendously essential to maintain good health. So now that we’ve all had time to adjust to our new normal way of living, it’s time to refocus on taking care of ourselves and being healthy.
What makes preventative screenings so important is they help detect different health and medical conditions early on in patients. Essentially, identifying health issues when they first start so they can be treated and cared for, which can prevent them from turning into much, much bigger health problems later on.
Rochelle Community Hospital offers a wide variety of preventative screening services thanks to our state-of-the-art technology and equipment. Plus, we have well-trained and experienced doctors, surgeons, technicians, nurses, specialists, and staff members who are committed to providing the best care possible.

Most preventative screenings can actually be completed during a regular wellness check-up with your primary healthcare provider or doctor. This makes getting a preventative screening very convenient and typically, they’re covered by most insurance plans. However, please note that before scheduling and having any preventative screening done at RCH, make sure to check with your insurance provider to understand your insurance coverage and see If there are any out of pocket costs.
