Clance, an epidemiologist at Anne Arundel Medical Center, discusses the history, troubles and appropriate uses of the drugs. How have antibiotics contributed to public health since their discovery and what is their status now? The collective memory of death from infectious disease is short-lived. Death from pneumonia, puerperal fever, post-operative infection, urinary and skin infections were commonplace just two generations ago.

Anne Arundel Medical Center has adopted a new policy that prohibits use of all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes.

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.

A little more than four years ago, Democrat Janet S. Owens and Republican John G. Gary fought a bitter campaign for county executive; Owens won, and Gary was history. Forgotten history, he says. As you walk in the front doors of the Arundel Center in Annapolis, there are pictures of the first four county executives: Joseph W. Alton Jr., Robert A. Pascal, O. James Lighthizer and Robert R. Neall. But there is no picture of Gary, the fifth. That will change Jan. 28 - four years, one month and 22 days after he left office.

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.
