Decatur Memorial Hospital
Hi! My name is Amanda Rios, I am the Physician Recruiter at Decatur Memorial Hospital! Born at DMH and raised in Decatur, my heart is in this community! Having the opportunity to bring the best providers to my neighbors, friends, family, and community is why I love my job!
Here are a few reasons why I love Decatur, IL! Decatur is a small rural community in the heart of central Illinois. Three hours south of Chicago and two hours North East of St. Louis, Decatur is a great place to live, work and play while being close enough with easy commutes to larger metro areas to get anywhere in the world you’d like to go! Just because you can travel, doesn't mean you will want to! Decatur is home to a 2,900 acre lake hosting events and concerts all summer long, a newly revitalized downtown with locally owned restaurant and shopping, an active park district including a new water park and amphitheater in 2019, 2 public golf courses and 2 private golf courses in Decatur, softball, tennis, and soccer complexes, Scovill Zoo, and our Children's Museum, parks, trails and so much more! If there isn’t an event that peaks your interest, Springfield, IL is a 30 minute drive West, featuring the state’s capital, many museums including the Abraham Lincoln museum, theaters, breweries, the annual State Fair! Bloomington, IL, a 45 minute drive North of Decatur, boasts well known chain restaurants and shopping. Champaign, IL, 45 minutes East of Decatur, is home to the University of Illinois, ILLINI Sports, and the State Farm Center that brings in well-known concerts, comedy, and more! All cities including Decatur, Springfield, Bloomington, and Champaign have airports with free parking that can take you direct to Chicago O’Hare, St. Louis Lambert International, Atlanta International, Dallas, and many direct flights to Orlando, FL, Myrtle Beach, SC, Vegas, NV, and so much more!
I choose to raise my family in this community, truly a community where your neighbor knows your name, strangers will wave as you drive by, an easy place to call home.
