GREENVILLE REGIONAL HOSPITAL RECOGNIZED FOR ACCURACY

 

Greenville Regional Hospital has been recognized as a "Top 200 Coding Hospital in the U.S." Ingenix, a leading health information company, has ranked Greenville Regional Hospital as the 35th out of 1,459 hospitals, in the completeness and accuracy of their medical coding practices. Medical coding involves turning the description of a diagnosis, symptom or procedure into a number that is recognized world-wide.


GREENVILLE HIGH SCHOOL ASSISTS WITH "PAYING FOR COLLEGE"

 

Greenville High School is hosting a financial aid presentation entitled "Paying for College" Thursday, Oct. 30, at the high school auditorium, from 6:30-7:30 PM.

$1 BILLION FOR ILLINOIS FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

 

Illinois State Treasurer Alex Giannoulis has announced that the state will make available up to $1 billion in interest earning deposits to Illinois banks and credit unions, in an effort to thaw the credit freeze. In theory, this should help enable the lending of money to businesses and consumers throughout the state. Currently the treasurer's office invests $1.7 billion in financial institutions in Illinois. Under the new program, banks can request up to $25 million each. Any state and federally charted bank and credit union is eligible. The money to fund this program will come from a reallocation of the state's diversified portfolio.

More than 700 Illinoisans were sworn in recently at a ceremony at the state capitol, to participate in the Serve Illinois Program, a part of Americorps.  Volunteers dedicate a year to helping communities meet their unmet human service, education, public safety or environmental needs.  Executive Director of the Serve Illinois Commission Scott Kimmel said, "Americorps is an excellent opportunity for people to volunteer their time and talents and give something back to their communities."  For more information, you can contact AmeriCorps or Serve Illinois, at www.Serve.Illinois.gov, or call 800-592-9896. 

 


SCAM EMAILS CLAIM TO BE FROM FBI

 

Recent E-mail scams have been reported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. One e-mail scam is claiming to be from the FBI. The e-mail tells recipients that they are the beneficiary of a large sum of money and that the only way to collect is to pay fees and provide banking information. The FBI strongly suggests you guard your personal information and never give out personal, credit or banking information in response to unsolicited e-mails. Also, the FBI says a new version of the Hit Man e-mail scam has surfaced. In this scam, an e-mail claims that a "loved one" will be kidnapped unless a ransom is paid. Again, this is a hoax.
