RUSHVILLE — RMH, St. Vincent partner for ER services

In May we reported that Rush Memorial Hospital and St. Vincent officials announced a new partnership to enhance emergency services for area residents and families.

Through the partnership, RMH will manage the emergency room (ER) and the faith-based health system will provide emergency medicine physicians and medical direction.

The partnership enhanced the level of emergency care for Rush County residents and ensured patients have increased access to advanced specialty care, according to RMH CEO Brad Smith.

“I am very excited about the relationship that has developed between Rush Memorial and St. Vincent as it relates to our Emergency Department,” Smith said at the time.

RCS board OKs changes

In early October, the Rush County Schools Board of Trustees approved a plan that outlines the procedure in which current superintendent of schools Dr. John Williams will be replaced.

This plan is an outline of what will take place as various roles change over the next two years.

The board approved the retirement of Dr. John E. Williams from the position of superintendent at the end of the 2013-2014 school year.

This plan also calls for the position of assistant superintendent to be filled beginning with the 2013-14 school year. The local school corporation has been without an assistant superintendent since Dennis Chambers left three years ago.

The board’s plan calls for current Rushville Consolidated High School Principal Matt Vance to fill the assistant superintendent position with the understanding that during this time Vance will gain first-hand knowledge in the long-term and day-to-day operation of Rush County Schools.

Upon successful completion of this transition and final approval of the board Vance would then assume the role of superintendent of the Rush County Schools.

In December, the Rushville Republican reported that the Rush County Schools Board of Trustees had named Robert C. Hadley to succeed Vance as the principal at Rushville Consolidated High School.

Hadley will continue to serve as the assistant principal at RCHS for the remainder of the 2012-2013 school year and begin serving as principal in the 2013-2014 school year (effective July 1, 2013).
