JCH a Top Ten Critical Access Hospital in Quality

The Nebraska Office of Rural Health and the Chartis Center for Rural Health recently recognized Johnson County Hospital as one of the top 10 Nebraska Critical Access Hospitals in overall performance in Quality. The Rural Provider Excellence Award in Quality is based on Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) measures that apply to all of Nebraska’s critical access hospitals, which measure the quality of care across the whole hospital, from medical staff, to dietary, to housekeeping.

Johnson County Hospital Quality Assurance Director Gina Kerner said, “The data we receive from the MBQIP measures helps us review our processes and improve the safety and quality of care for our patients.”

Erickson earns FFA American Degree

“It’s very humbling and it gives you a sense of accomplishment,” said Micah Erickson of Sterling who earned the highest award of distinction an FFA member can receive. He was awarded his American degree at the National FFA Convention in Indiana in October.

Erickson’s paternal grandfather, Dan Erickson of Illinois, is the only other family member to receive this degree. Erickson stopped to visit his grandfather on his return trip home. For his American degree, Erickson participated in the SAE Super Agricultural Experience where he was in charge of two agricultural projects. The first was a placement project which included working on the farm with his father, Jim Erickson. He also raised 4-H livestock, keeping track of feed, weight gain and other pertinent statistics for eight cattle. He usually took two cattle that he raised to the Johnson County Fair for the beef show competition every year. “It takes a lot of work to receive this degree,” Erickson said.

What Came First? The Tecumseh Chieftain!!

Before the telephone, there was The Tecumseh Chieftain. Before the fountain pen that carried its own supply of ink, there was the Tecumseh Chieftain. Before the light bulb, Coca Cola, radio and crayons, there was the Tecumseh Chieftain.

The Tecumseh Chieftain has been “Devoted to the Welfare of Johnson County” from the beginning and now we celebrate the beginning of our 150th year of publication. We are very excited to be planning this year-long celebration and to dig into the history of The Tecumseh Chieftain.

You might be surprised at the roles newspapers have played in their communities and how those roles have changed over the years. Technology has changed society and the newspaper industry, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the newspaper’s desire to inform, entertain, and support the people and organizations of Johnson County.
