MidMichigan Physicians Group honored

MidMichigan Physicians Group recently was honored by Professional Research Consultants Inc. with several Excellence in Healthcare Awards, the Midland-based doctors group linked to the Alpena hospital said in a news release.

Honored were family medicine physician Dr. Sasha Savage, and physician assistant Cara Callan, who received the Top Performer Award. In addition, 85 physicians and advanced practice providers who were recognized with the Five-Star Excellence in Healthcare Award. Honored as Five Star Performers were the Center for Women’s Health, the Surgical ICU and the Maternal Child Health Unit at MidMichigan Medical Center-Midland, and inpatient rehabilitation services at MidMichigan Medical Center-Gratiot.

“These awards show that our health care providers and staff are committed to providing the best possible care to each and every one of their patients,” said Dr. Paul Berg, president of MidMichigan Physicians Group. “We are incredibly proud of those who were recognized this year with PRC Awards, and we will continue our goal of providing the highest level of care to every patient we serve.”

Missed tax deadline?

Treasury offers help

The Michigan Treasury said in a news release that taxpayers who missed the April 15 deadline still have options.

Past-due filers have four years to claim a refund, Treasury said in a news release. If they owe taxes, filing sooner rather than later helps avoid interest and penalties.

Taxpayers who owe money can request a penalty waiver, set up monthly payments, or file an Offer in Compromise application to strike a deal on tax liability.
