RCH Names High Performer of 2017

Rochelle Community Hospital named Linda Kulesa as its’ 2017 High Performer of the Year at the RCH annual holiday party held at Franchesco's Ristorante in Rockford on January 12. Linda was selected among the 12 High Performers of the Month in 2017. She has been employed at the hospital for two years as the RN Internal Auditor in the Health Information Management Department.

Her nomination reads, “Linda has brought much experience and expertise to our team. Her efforts have helped improve documentation in the patient record, assured error-free billing and accurate reimbursements. She plans her personal schedule around what is best for the department that week based on workload. She’s always willing to learn or try something new or to help anyone out.

Linda performs corporate compliance audits alleviating that task from the managers. Many of the improvements she has made lend themselves to increased efficiency in billing which improves the turnaround time from services rendered to receiving payment. We are lucky to have someone with this level of professionalism working with us. She makes us all better on the revenue cycle team.”

As the High Performer of the Year, Linda received assorted gifts including a plaque recognizing this honor.
