ROCHELLE — Robert Johns, Senior Vice President of Administration, will be retiring from Rochelle Community Hospital on Friday, March 29. A community open house will be held the same day from 2 to 4 p.m. in the hospital cafeteria.
Johns has been an employee at RCH for 15 years, first hired as human resources manager. He has also served as the Executive Director of the RCH Foundation during the 2003-2004 capital campaign and organized the establishment of the Foundation’s annual golf outing, a very successful fundraiser for the last 12 years.
Johns’ community participation has included service as Rotary Club President, a member of the Rochelle Board of Police and Fire Commissioners and the Rochelle Planning and Zoning Commission.
Johns is an avid golfer, but when he’s not golfing, he and his wife, Jeri, look forward to doing some traveling and spending more time with their two daughters and their families, including five grandchildren.
