Spine Surgery Begins in Hopedale

               Nitin Kukkar, M.D. will begin spine surgery at Hopedale Medical Complex on Wednesday, February 20, 2018. Dr. Kukkar joined HMC’s practice during the fall of 2017. Dr. Kukkar specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery and orthopedic surgery.                 Dr. Kukkar and Hopedale Medical Complex are an excellent pairing because both focus on providing state-of-the-art medical treatment in a relational atmosphere. Growing up in India, Dr. Kukkar experienced firsthand the necessity for rural orthopedic surgeons; Dr. Kukkar’s father suffered a severe knee injury that brought him near death. Due to a lack of orthopedic care near their farm it was nearly two years before Dr. Kukkar’s father could walk unaided by crutches. This shaping experience was part of the reason Dr. Kukkar became an orthopedic surgeon. Similarly, Hopedale Hospital was opened in 1955 when Lawrence J. Rossi, Sr., M.D. wanted to serve local farmers and families with the medical services provided i

Critical Incident Training



A unique performance portraying events as recalled by survivors of the Holocaust opens for six performances when the Illinois Central College Theatre Program presents And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank in the mainstage theatre of the ICC Performing Arts Center, located on the East Peoria Campus. And Then They Came for Me is a unique theatrical experience – a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Silverberg was Anne Frank's first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in the beginning of her now-famous diary. Schloss was the same age as Anne Frank and lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam. Eva’s family went into hiding the same day as the Frank family, and like the Frank family, they were betrayed. On Eva’s 15th birthday, the Schloss family was arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps. Ev

Unland Information on Employee Retention

Employee Retention It costs nearly 20 percent of an employee’s annual salary to replace a current employee. If you are experiencing high turnover, chances are you are experiencing high losses as well. The costs of reviewing applications, processing candidates, conducting interviews, training and purchasing equipment for new hires aren’t only monetary—they also cost time and lost productivity. Given the high cost of losing an employee, retention should be a top priority for every organization. If you do not already have a retention strategy, now is the time to make one. The first step in curbing turnover is figuring out why employees are leaving. Why Employees Leave Employees leave organizations for a variety of reasons, depending on their unique circumstances. However, there are some common reasons that may help determine the best retention strategy for your organization.

In Kadish’s book, the desire alluded to is a deep burning quest for knowledge and understanding denied by the mere fact of a Jewish woman’s gender in 17 th century London. In this sweeping historical novel, readers go back and forth from the 17th century when Ester Velasquez arrived in England as an immigrant and was permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi to the travails of the young postgraduate student and his ailing historian mentor
