The acting secretary of veterans affairs said Tuesday that the agency would add more primary care physicians to the Maryland VA Health Care System to help reduce the long waits for veterans seeking appointments with doctors. Acting Secretary Sloan Gibson said the agency would also add $500,000 - a 40 percent increase - to help veterans facing delays seek private care. Gibson, who replaced the embattled former Secretary Eric K. Shinseki last month, visited the Baltimore VA Medical Center a week after a nationwide audit showed that veterans in the Maryland system face the fourth-longest wait to schedule a first-time visit with a primary care doctor.

But too much screen time might not be healthy, especially if it's replacing physical activities or interfering with personal relationships or homework. Dr. Timothy F. Doran, chairman of pediatrics at Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Towson, explains how much might be too much and what to do instead. There are so many devices available now and kids love them.

About 34,000 Baltimore children are injured in home and traffic accidents and require medical attention each year -- a figure that has sparked Johns Hopkins health officials to launch a mobile safety center to illustrate potential hazards and preventative measures. The center is mounted on a 40-foot trailer, and its interior simulates a typical house with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and stairway. It will be staffed by instructors from Johns Hopkins' Bloomberg School of Public Health and the city Fire Department.

For Sean Hearn, there was no better way to spend Father's Day than sweating through a hilly 5K road race in Towson, pushing sons Shane and Wyatt in a double-wide stroller. A little more than four years ago, Shane spent 10 days in the neonatal intensive care unit at Greater Baltimore Medical Center before going home to Hunt Valley on Mother's Day. "As he laid in the NICU, I made lots of promises, and one was to participate in this," Hearn said shortly after finishing GBMC's 25th annual Fathers Day 5K race.

Dr. Nikita Levy and the Johns Hopkins clinic where he worked have no records of complaints against them, according to state health officials. But just who is responsible for oversight of the East Baltimore Medical Center where he is alleged to have secretly recorded his patients? Two state health regulatory bodies have the authority to investigate complaints that might have been received about Levy or the center, health officials said. But neither has broad authority over clinics like the East Baltimore center.

Landlocked in downtown Baltimore and unable to bear the weight of more floors, the Baltimore VA Medical Center has expanded inward. The seven-story building, which occupies a city block on Greene Street between Baltimore and Fayette streets, has enclosed its signature glass front and taken footage from its atrium to increase space on every floor for offices, clinics, conference rooms, research labs, and its renowned robotics program. The $11 million project, which coincides with the hospital's 20th anniversary, gives the acute-care facility for veterans an extra 15,000 square feet.

Commitment seems to come naturally to Anne Arundel County resident R. Kent Schwab. As a Boy Scout he completed his Eagle Scout requirements before he was 15. He joined his high school newspaper and eventually became editor. And when he joined a fraternity in college, he ended up serving as its president. So it's not surprising that after listening to a presentation eight years ago about a new fundraising campaign for the Baltimore Washington Medical Center, Schwab didn't just offer his help but jumped in with both feet.
