4A 4A WORLD THE SOUTHERN ILLINOISAN • SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2014 THE SOUTHERN ILLINOISAN • SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2014 www.thesouthern.com Insurgents blow up bridge, abduct wife, kids MICHELLE FAUL AND IBRAHIM ABDULAZIZ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS YOLA, Nigeria — Islamic ex t re m i s ts b l ew u p a bridge, killed an unknown number of people and abducted the wife and two children of a retired police officer in northeast Nigeria, residents said Saturday amid mounting condemnation by Muslims of the Nigerian terrorist network that abducted more than 300 schoolgirls nearly a month ago. News of Friday night’s attack came as international efforts to help rescue the 276 missing girls got under way. A team of French experts arrived Saturday in Nigeria, said an official in President Francois Hollande’s office in Paris. He said they are expert in collecting intelligence from technical and human sources and in image analysis. British security experts arrived Friday to join Nigerian and American forces, and Britain said its aim is not only to help in the crisis over the girls but to defeat Nigeria’s homegrown Boko Haram terrorist network. International outrage at the prolonged failure of Nigeria’s military to rescue the girls was joined Saturday by U.S. first lady M ichelle Obama. In a radio address on the eve of the Sunday honoring mothers in the United States she said she and President Barack Obama are “outraged and heartbroken” over the April 15 mass abduction. “In these girls, Barack and I see our own daughters,” Mrs. Obama said, referring to Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12. “We see their hopes, their dreams and we can only imagine the anguish their parents are feeling right now.” One of them, the Rev. Enoch Mark, described his despair and anger at the military for not finding his two abducted daughters. “For a good 11 days, our daughters were sitting in one place,” he told The Associated Press. “They camped them near Chibok (the town from which they were abducted), not more than 30 kilometers, and no help in hand.” A well-known Nigerian Islamic scholar meanwhile warned that having foreign soldiers on Nigerian soil could escalate the conflict and draw foreign extremists to the West African nation. Ahmed Mahmud-Gumi, speaking in northern Kaduna city on Friday, said it “may trigger waves of terrorism never seen before.” “Foreign terrorists are eager to engage foreign forces, making Nigeria just another battle ground” like Afghanistan and Iraq, he said. Former Nigerian military ruler Gen. Ibrahim Babangida urged the country’s Muslims to rise up against the extremists sullying the name of Islam. “Islam enjoins you to live peacefully with fellow human beings. ... Therefore, anybody who will come and smear our name, all Muslims should kick against that. Muslims should also do everything possible to stop this continued blackmail against the religion of Islam,” he said in an interview Saturday with the BBC Hausa Service.

Boko Haram has said it wants to enforce Shariah law across the entire country though Nigeria’s population of 170 million is divided almost equally between Christians and Muslims. Shariah is pursued to varying degrees in most northern states.

Accreditation distinguishes this ambulatory surgery center from many other outpatient facilities by providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation. Status as an accredited organization means Physicians’ Surgery Center has met nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by AAAHC. More than 5,000 ambulatory health care organizations across the United States are accredited by AAAHC.

It means we as an organization care enough about our patients to strive for the highest level of care possible.” Ambulatory health care organizations seeking accreditation by AAAHC undergo an extensive self-assessment and on-site survey by AAAHC expert surveyors – physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in ambulatory health care. The survey is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services. “Going through the process challenged us to ind better ways to serve our patients, and it is a constant reminder that our responsibility is to strive to continuously improve the quality of care we provide,” said Stephen Renfro, Administrator.

The Clinic and the surgery center were sold to Southern Illinois Healthcare Services (SIH) in November, 2007. The facility name was changed to Physicians’ Surgery Center, LLC as of December 2, 2007. In 2008, the Physicians’ Surgery Center was syndicated and SIH owned 55% and individual physicians of the area owned 45%. Physicians’ Surgery Center provides a facility where any one of the twenty two surgeons and physicians in different specialties on our medical staff can perform elective, outpatient surgeries and procedures. These specialties include ENT, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, GYN, Ophthalmology, Pain Management and Urology. Our web site is www.physicianssurgerycenter.org.
