I've been a physician on the medical staff of St. Agnes Hospital since 1965, and since that time, there has been a significant change in the needs of those whom the hospital serves ( "Some neighbors unhappy as plans coalesce for Cardinal Gibbons," July 1). Regardless of those needs, St. Agnes, in the mission of Saint Elizabeth Seton, has remained committed to provide not just health care but living assistance to our patients. The doctors, nurses and administration of the hospital reach out to its community for support in that effort.

"Eat, drink and be merry" seemed the theme at the St. Agnes Fall Gala -- "Laughter is the Best Medicine." Some 580 guests were treated to a cocktail hour, then a gourmet dinner at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel. Further putting a smile on folks' faces -- the night's entertainment -- Harry Anderson, the comedian / magician who starred in the TV sitcom "Night Court." If those guests who had young children seemed to be extra relaxed, maybe that was because they knew their kids were being entertained at their own party -- "Kinder Gala" -- right down the hall, complete with their own magician, arts and crafts, movies, games and food.

Bruce Wheatley was considering coming back to the Towson area where he grew up when he saw an advertisement for an obstetrics and gynecology practice in Columbia that pitched an all-female staff. As a nurse, he was dismayed enough to complain to St. Agnes Hospital about the affiliated office, but the hospital defended the hiring practice. Some women are more comfortable with a female doctor because of the sensitive nature of exams or because they believe another woman better understands their needs.

A milestone change has occurred at West Baltimore's St. Agnes Hospital. For the first time in that institution's 129-year history, its president comes from outside the ranks of the Daughters of Charity.The reason is quite simple. As a result of the incredible societal convulsions of the past few decades, the number of nuns has plummeted.At St. Agnes, only 15 of the 2,900 employees are nuns. The hospital's board of directors is still being run by Daughters of Charity. Two vice presidents are nuns.

When the owners of troubled St. Joseph Medical Center put the Towson hospital up for sale a year ago, the University of Maryland Medical System didn't hesitate to put in a bid. Medical violations by its star cardiologist had left St. Joseph in financial disarray and struggling to hang on to patients, doctors and its reputation. It faced millions of dollars in lawsuits and the prospect of a further decline. But the UMMS board and its top executives saw opportunity in the 148-year-old Catholic medical institution started by the Sisters of St. Francis.

While health professionals encourage people to get from seven to eight hours of sleep nightly, millions of Americans are falling well short of that mark. Many are getting just five to six hours and recent studies have shown that more than 20 percent of the population may be suffering from some type of sleep disorder. St. Agnes Hospital now has a renovated and expanded facility dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. The St. Agnes Sleep Center is open to adults and children as young as 3 years old. The patients are usually referred to the facility by their primary care doctor or cardiologist.
