A Message To Our Patients

I want to start by saying thank you for your support through this past year of transition. Losing my beloved practice partner was devastating and I continue to try to heal and grieve Dr. Harold Nord’s passing. My gracious staff has tremendously supported our patients and me through this year with abundant love. We grieve together as we continue to provide the best care we can to our patients.

After much patience, prayer and trust that God will provide and continue the vision of Dr. Harold Nord, I am grateful to announce that a new physician will be joining us in July 2019. He shares our vision for compassionate care that ministers the love of Christ and feels God calling him to serve with our office. I have known him for almost twenty years; he is a wonderful person and doctor, and I am confident that together we will provide exceptional care to our community.

My staff and I will forever be grateful for the practice that Dr. Nord founded. Though our name as a practice has changed to Heart of Illinois Obstetrics & Gynecology, our mission remains the same as we seek to minister the love of Christ through healthcare.

Grace and Peace,

Dr. Rachel Dalton
