ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Rock Valley College opens its new RVCare on-campus wellness clinic, marking a new chapter in partnership with OSF Health Care.

RVC President Doug Jensen says the clinic not only focuses on getting employees back to health after getting sick but it looks to improve their overall health.

"We need to focus on wellness versus illness. So these types of centers are very important to give everyone access and flexibility to our employees so that they can treat and understand what their disease mismanagements might be as quickly as possible so we don't get into a situation where people are only looking at illness versus wellness," says Jensen.

RVCare is open four days a week for RVC employees and their family members who are covered under the college's insurance plan.
