Sylvan House hires Lundholm

John Lundholm, RN, was recently hired as wellness director for Sylvan House, an assisted living concepts residence. In this position, John is responsible for monitoring and evaluating all of the residents at the house and is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Edward Jones makes innovators list

Financial-service firm Edward Jones ranked in the top 100 on this year's InformationWeek 500 - a list of the top technology innovators in the U.S., according to the financial advisers in Coeur d'Alene, Hayden, Post Falls and Rathdrum

Edward Jones was ranked as the No. 90 company among 500 companies chosen for the list. It was recognized for a project developed and rolled out to all of its 12,000 North American financial advisors in a mere five months - JonesLink Mobile, a mobile-friendly desktop rich with client information and usable on iPads, tablets and smartphones.

The March rollout instantly made it easier for financial advisers to provide face-to-face personalized advice wherever most convenient for clients. With the rich app experience available on a tablet, they can access a client account, then review a client's portfolio and analytic charts to prepare for an appointment or conduct a meeting.

The InformationWeek 500 ranking is unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.

STCU named among nation's best

STCU is one of just five U.S. credit unions that have been judged among the nation's highest performers by Raddon Financial Group for four consecutive years.

Raddon considers a vast array of data provided by more than 500 credit unions to compile its Raddon Performance Index, a measure of growth, service and overall performance. The company on Thursday announced that STCU is among 22 credit unions nationwide receiving its 2012 Crystal Performance Award for performance in 2011. STCU also received the award in 2011, 2010 and 2009.

No other Northwest credit union made this year's list.

"The difficult market conditions and regulatory challenges community institutions face today make it difficult to perform at a high level," said Bill Handel, Raddon's vice president of research and product development. "Despite these challenges, these (22) credit unions succeed because of their commitment to develop and deploy successful strategies."

The five credit unions that are four-time consecutive honorees are (total assets):

- Community First Credit Union, Wisconsin ($1.6 billion)

- Logix, California ($3.3 billion)

- Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union, Texas ($5.1 billion)

- San Diego County Credit Union ($5.7 billion)

- STCU, Spokane ($1.6 billion)
