TAYLORVILLE – Rhonda Hafliger of Assumption, a patient access associate in the Outpatient Care Center at Taylorville Memorial Hospital, is the nonprofit hospital’s Colleague of the Month for November.
Hafliger joined Taylorville Memorial Hospital in 2019. “The most rewarding part of my job is knowing I help make the patient’s visit go smoothly, whether it’s a change of address or getting a new diagnosis code from the doctor,” she said.
Medical emergencies occurred recently near Hafliger’s work station and, although she is a nonclinical colleague, she responded with impressive speed and quick thinking, said hospital officials. In her daily role, Hafliger is a true team player, doing whatever she can within and outside her own job responsibilities to support her department, they said.
Outside of work, Hafliger enjoys spending time with her son, morning walks and reading.
