'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Excela Health said John Sphon has been named full-time CEO of MedCare Equipment Co., a durable medical equipment supplier.

Greensburg-based Excela, nonprofit owner of three Westmoreland County hospitals, is the principal shareholder in MedCare.

Sphon previously was vice president of ambulatory and diagnostic services for Excela, a position that in addition to running MedCare put him in charge of Excela's home care and hospice program.

Sherry Gaston will be vice president of ambulatory and diagnostic services. Doug Dascenzo, vice president of patient care service at Latrobe Hospital, will run the home care and hospice program.
