How emotional did Jimmy Kimmel get when ISIS, executed all those Christians on a beach, or when they burn people alive, or throw homosexuals off buildings, or crucify women and children? Did he get emotional when our boys were senselessly murdered in Tennessee? Did he hear about Kermit Gosnell's little shop of horrors, or Planned Parenthoods big shop of horrors? Between this, the current love…

pjohnf - Anti-abortion group releases fourth Planned Parenthood video - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
The White House on Thursday waded into the debate, calling the group behind the sting videos "extremists on the right." Of course Obama's WH came out in support of PP since abortion is the holy grail of the democrat party. Only democrats would come out and support the killing of babies.

Maureen Kahn to move up from Blessing Hospital CEO to Blessing Corporate CEO

Maureen A. Kahn will become President/Chief Executive Officer of Blessing Corporate Services (BCS) on October 1, 2014.

Kahn, the current President/ Chief Executive Officer of Blessing Hospital, was selected by the BCS Board of Trustees to replace Brad Billings. 

Billings retires on September 30, 2014, after 34 years of service to the Blessing organization, the last 14 years as BCS President/CEO.

BCS is the parent company of the Blessing Health System, which includes Blessing Hospital; Illini Community Hospital in Pittsfield, IL; Blessing Physician Services; The Blessing Foundation, Inc. and Denman Services, Inc.

“The Blessing Corporate Services Board of Trustees is thrilled to find someone within the organization with the proven skill and ability to move the Blessing Health System forward in its Mission to improve the health of our community, and who holds the respect of that community,” said Tim Koontz, chairman, BCS Board of Trustees.

Kahn had 24 years’ experience in healthcare before arriving at Blessing Hospital, having served as a Senior Vice President of Patient Services at Newton Wellesley Hospital in Newton, MA, a Boston suburb, and in leadership positions at hospitals in New York and Pennsylvania.

She joined Blessing Hospital in April 2001 as Senior Vice President/Chief Nursing Officer, and became President/CEO on May 1, 2005. 

“I have watched Maureen mature as a leader over the past 13 years,” said Billings.  “Under her leadership, the care provided by Hospital staff has become nationally recognized on many levels.”

“She is an intelligent, experienced and compassionate healthcare professional who has the best interests of the people of this region and Blessing Health System at heart,” he concluded.

“This region became my home 13 years ago, and everyone in it my neighbors,” Kahn said. “I am honored that the Blessing Corporate Services Board saw fit to give to me the ultimate accountability for improving the health of our community using all the resources of the Blessing Health System.”

Kahn and the Blessing Hospital Board of Trustees will now begin addressing the vacancy created by her promotion, either through selection of a successor or by making changes to the Hospital’s organizational structure.

“The Blessing Hospital Board of Trustees is in full support of Maureen’s promotion,” said Tom Miller, MD, Board chairman. “We thank Maureen for her investment of talent and energy in the growth of Blessing Hospital over the past decade, recognize her many accomplishments, and look forward to similar success for the entire Blessing Health System under her leadership in the years to come.”

Kahn holds a Master degree in Health Care Administration from Hamilton University; a Master degree in Nursing from the University of Phoenix, a Bachelor degree in Business Administration and received her nursing education from Frankford Hospital School of Nursing, Philadelphia, PA.
