The Internal Revenue Service announces that Federal income tax refunds totaling $950 million may be waiting for an estimated one million taxpayers who did not file a federal income tax return for 2012.

The Kansas Trauma Program recently named Great Bend Regional Hospital a Level IV Trauma Center, a designation earned through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment's Kansas Trauma System. The statewide program serves as a systematic approach to providing care to the injured patient. It's a network of relationships between EMS providers, emergency departments, and tertiary referral facilities, designed to direct the trauma patient to the resources most appropriate for the care needed based on the nature of the injury.
