About this Exploration:
The new Rooks County Health Center (RCHC), dedicated in September 2008, is not your typical hospital with an "institutional" look. RCHC was designed to feature the iconic materials found within the rural communities of Rooks County.
Red was chosen to represent barn buildings, lean-tos, and other farm buildings. The green siding was used to represent the green fields and grass.
The design uses materials indigenous to this area of Kansas, like galvanized metal, brick, concrete, steel and limestone--things frequently seen in farm settings all around Rooks County.
An Explorer must-see is the foyer of the hospital that features large photographs of local landscapes taken by local artist Lawrence Pfortmiller. Other local artists are featured in the chapel area including oil paintings and stained glass windows.
As for the colors of "RCH" logo? Ask a local where the three colors originate.
Generally, the hospital is open to the viewing public during regular business hours, with a person at the admissions desk in the front entrance. Staffed hours are Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-5 p.m.
