Anne Arundel Medical Center has adopted a new policy that prohibits use of all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes. And next year, the hospital plans to stop hiring anyone who uses tobacco products. The hospital has banned cigarette smoking on campus since 2007, like many hospitals, but the new policy in effect July 1 was expanded to include the smokeless products. And there will be no designated smoking areas in garages or on sidewalks. The policy applies to staff, as well as vendors and visitors.

After 13 years of experience in Maryland real estate, David Orso decided to use his skills to better equip those entering the housing market by writing a book.

The head of aerospace technology firm ARINC and his wife have pledged at least $11 million to Anne Arundel Medical Center, the largest bequest ever to the hospital. John and Cathy Belcher of Edgewater will give the first $1 million to the hospital over the next several years.  At least $10 million will go to the hospital after the couple's death when their estate is liquidated. That amount could be higher depending on the value of the estate. The hospital will rename the Health Sciences Pavillion the “John and Cathy Belcher Pavillion," in honor of the couple's gift.

Charged with being all down-to-earth and accessible, the first thing doctors John Martin and Briana Walton did was lose the white coats. Then they got down to business. "I'm really very surprised that so many people came out," said a smiling Martin. "Absolutely," nodded a smiling Walton. And thus it went Tuesday evening at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, as the hospital unveiled its monthly "DocsTalk" gatherings. Determined to make these informal health-information sessions as entertaining and jargon-free as possible, the hospital has come up with an approach that's equal parts "Today Show" and "Dr. Oz," but without the TV cameras.

Antibiotics have saved countless lives over the years, but their overuse has lead to problems including antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Dr. Mary R. Clance, an epidemiologist at Anne Arundel Medical Center, discusses the history, troubles and appropriate uses of the drugs.

Carroll Hospital Center is joining Anne Arundel Medical Center and other health systems, businesses and employers who won't hire people who smoke cigarettes or use other nicotine products. Carroll announced the policy Thursday, and it expands on a policy that bans use of tobacco products on campus. The expanded ban is expected to begin in January. Nicotine causes a wide range of health problems and is the leading cause of preventable death, hospital officials said, and is not part of the healthy lifestyle they are trying to promote.
