University of Maryland Capital Region Health has appealed a Prince George’s County judge’s decision to allow Anne Arundel County Medical Center to proceed with a new cardiac surgery program. The Maryland Health Care Commission approved the new program’s certificate of need last year, but both Dimensions Health Care (now University of Maryland Capital Region Health) and the University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center objected to the approval. “UM Capital Region Health’s top priority is providing patient care to the community and continuing positive steps to improve health care delivery to Prince George’s County and surrounding region,” the medical system said in a statement. “We have therefore appealed the latest ruling in which the Circuit Court affirmed the Maryland Health Care Commission’s decision to award a cardiac surgery CON to Anne Arundel Medical Center.” The University of Maryland Capital Region … [Read more...] about UM Capital Region Health to appeal AAMC certificate of need ruling

Last Updated Dec 8, 2017 2:59 PM EST LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Arkansas has resumed issuing birth certificates after the governor ordered the Health Department to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling and list the spouse of the woman who gives birth as a parent, regardless of gender. A state Department of Health spokeswoman says the agency resumed issuing and amending certificates Friday, less than two hours after halting because of an order by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox. According to the governor's office, the Health Department must also issue two corrected birth certificates that list both spouses, if they would have been entitled to be named on the first certificate. The department is also required to now issue forms that accurately list female spouses of women who give birth on their child's certificate. On Friday, Fox set aside his orders requiring the state and three same-sex couples go into mediation on how to fix the state law to comply with the U.S. high … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Arkansas resumes issuing birth certificates after judge halted program
Forget about savings accounts and certificates of deposit. Safety-first investors looking for the best returns can earn more by socking their money in interest-bearing checking accounts. Twenty-one banks and credit unions now offer checking accounts that pay interest rates of 2 percent or more, according to a new study by BankRate.com. That's more than 10 times the yield you'd get on the average bank savings account, and it's comparable to what you'd earn on a 5-year certificate of deposit, which would levy a heavy fine if you wanted to withdraw your money early. It's also more than you could currently earn on a 10-year Treasury note. Checking accounts, of course, provide easy access to your funds at any time, and there's no risk to your principal because the federal government guarantees balances to $250,000 per depositor. "Even in this low-rate environment, consumers can generate hundreds of dollars in interest earnings per year with these accounts," said Bankrate.com Chief Financial … [Read more...] about A checking account that pays 5 percent interest

After serving in the Army’s last horse cavalry unit in India during World War II, Robert Barnes Delano came home to Virginia and served briefly as an assistant county extension agent, helping farmers in Prince George, Dinwiddie and Nottoway counties better their farm operations. During that time, he decided that he would rather farm than dispense advice. A native of Wellfords Wharf, he returned to Richmond County and became manager of his father’s 128-acre farm, Level Green, near Warsaw, where he built a modern concrete-block six-cow electric milking parlor and, over about 15 years, ran a dairy operation that grew to a herd of 50 mostly Holstein cows. Mr. Delano concurrently took on a heavy load of civic and farm-related activities that landed him as charter president of the Richmond County Farm Bureau, which he helped organize in 1955. Mr. Delano, who helped shape farm policy locally, statewide and nationally as president of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation and … [Read more...] about Service set Wednesday for Robert B.

By Tony Saavedra | [email protected] and Scott Schwebke | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: December 17, 2017 at 5:45 am | UPDATED: December 18, 2017 at 4:03 pm Part of our ongoing investigation into the Southern California rehab industry. Philip Ganong, his wife and their 34-year-old son built a fast-growing, multimillion-dollar empire on urine. They collected it from drug addicts at their chain of Southern California sober living homes. They created labs to test it. And they charged insurance companies to analyze it. But the success story was a scam, according to prosecutors, who have accused the Ganongs of fraud. They say the family used a network of doctors and others to bilk insurers out of as much as $22 million for tests that were unnecessary or never performed. The Ganongs have pleaded not guilty and are awaiting trial. But the allegations raised in the Ganong case highlight what a growing number of critics say are chronic shortcomings in the oversight of … [Read more...] about How a multimillion-dollar empire built around urine drug tests exposes flaws in California’s rehab laws
