A second "Victim" has surfaced. Is he/she angry the first guy got paid off and he/she did not? How many others are out there? Jerry Sandusky had many victims come out after the story became public. Bill Cosby knows how many silent victims get courage after the story becomes public. Voyeurism is second only to sports.

Quincy facility only rural hospital in Illinois to make the list

Blessing Hospital has been recognized by the Leapfrog Group as one of the top 13 rural hospitals in the US for 2012.

The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization of large purchasers of health care that includes companies like Fed-Ex and UPS, GM, Toyota and Boeing.

Blessing is the only rural hospital in Illinois to make the list.

President and CEO Maureen Kahn says the recognition is awesome.

"Our work in quality and safety stood out. We were compared to 1,200 other hospitals in the United States," said Kahn. "We were one of the 13 hospitals recognized who are delivering rural care."

Kahn notes that Leapfrog is a coalition of all businesses that looks at quality and safety.

"Today, the biggest agenda for businesses is their cost of healthcare," Kahn said. "How can I keep my workers healthy and how do I get them back to work faster?"

Kahn says to stay on the list in 2013 - the hospital will need to step up its performance from 99 percent to 100 percent.

EDITOR'S NOTE: An earlier version of this report said Blessing was compared to 12 hospitals, not 1,200. We regret the error.
