ROCKHILL (AP) If you’re not feeling well, go home.
If you are, come back and get the medicine you need.
It’s the advice of Rockhill orthopaedics Chief Medical Officer Dr. Steven Henson.
Rockhill is in the midst of a massive, six-year expansion effort.
The hospital has expanded from two acute-care beds to five in a new hospital in East Providence, and it plans to add additional beds for outpatient care as part of its ongoing expansion.
Henson says Rockhill is a good place to work.
There are more than 50 doctors, nurses and other professionals in the hospital, which includes a surgical suite, rehabilitation unit and surgical services.
He says Rockhampton has the best doctors, the best specialists and the best facilities.
But the hospital has problems.
Hanson says there’s been a steady stream of people leaving the hospital.
The majority of patients come in for surgery, but the hospital can’t keep up with demand.
He said the staffs staffing levels and staffing are not good enough.
He says the Rockhamnpton Health System needs to change its focus.
The system has been underperforming and that needs to be fixed, he says.
Hilton says the system has struggled to keep up.
That’s why Henson is leaving Rockhamport and joining Providence Health & St. Vincent &” Marie Claire.
He is the hospital’s first new medical director in five years.
Hentens job starts with an urgent call from the mayor of Rockhamland, who asked him to make the call.
He was there for the first time on April 9.
Hennison says he’s excited to lead Rockhamtown and look forward to helping the patients of Rockingham.
He has no plans to retire.
