MedStar Health plans to open its new hybrid health care facility off Key Highway in the Federal Hill-Locust Point area July 7 that will offer both urgent care and doctor appointments.   The hospital chain already has a similar facility in Mitchellville and plans and third in Bel Air. Officials believe such "one-stop shops" will be convenient for patients and a good business model for them. More than 25,000 people are expected to use the facility in the first year, either for urgent care or for medical services in the areas of primary care, orthopedics and sports medicine, cardiology or obstetrics-gynecology.

AT A BRAINSTORMING session last week on expanding access to health care in Maryland, there was a palpable longing for a solution that somehow wouldn't cost anything. Trim the bureaucratic fat, get people to avoid risky behavior, squeeze more out of the feds (as though federal taxpayers don't include Marylanders) - those were among the notions proposed. The lawmakers present were more realistic about the tough choices required to extend primary and preventive care services to the 690,000 Marylanders without it: You can't get there from here unless somebody pays.

Shirley Kane didn't think she could take it any more. Her 87-year-old mother, diagnosed with terminal cancer, was bedridden at home. Kane was the only person feeding her, sorting out her medications, keeping her clean. The job was so overwhelming that she abandoned her own activities, forsook her own health needs and sank into depression. "They say the caregiver goes first," Kane says. "I almost felt like I didn't want to live anymore. " Then the 64-year-old did something studies show is exceptional among her fellow African-Americans.

About $14.3 million generated by the 2011 state alcohol tax will be used to expand long-term care services to frail seniors and adults with disabilities, officials said Wednesday. The money will mean the seniors and disabled people will be able to stay in their homes or communities, rather than moving to nursing homes or other facilities. "Keeping seniors and those with disabilities in their communities and closer to their families leads to a higher quality of life," said Lt. Governor Anthony G. Brown, in a statement.

Like a one-two punch, two major Maryland employers in the health care service and pharmaceutical industries were the targets last week of multibillion-dollar acquisition deals. Both homegrown companies — Human Genome Sciences Inc. and Catalyst Health Solutions Inc. — are based in Rockville. Both were courted by out-of-state companies. Human Genome ultimately rebuffed a $2.6 billion offer by biopharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, saying it was too low. But Catalyst agreed to be acquired by a larger Illinois competitor for $4.4 billion, and Human Genome has officially acknowledged it's on the market.

I don't want to pay for other people's contraceptives, abortifacients and abortions. Further, I don't want to be forced to participate in insurance plans which mandate the provision of abortions and other services to which I am morally opposed. We should have the liberty to abstain from such programs and choose other plans from a competitive insurance marketplace. The federal government is limited to enumerated powers by the Constitution, which means the states are free to establish their own insurance laws and regulations.

Contemporary Family Services, Maryland's second-largest foster care provider, has appealed the state's decision to terminate its license when it expires in mid-March. The appeal, which will be heard by a state administrative law judge, puts on hold a decision by the Department of Human Resources to terminate the state's relationship with Hyattsville-based Contemporary Family Services and require the company's foster parents to transfer to other providers. If the judge upholds the state's decision, the company must return its license and cease foster care services immediately, according to a Feb. 21 letter from the Department of Human Resources.

Categories of hospital and nursing home beds are expanding, under the advances of medical technology and, more importantly, the cost-cutting pressures from insurance companies and managed-care groups. More categories or layers of care-level can save money by providing patients with adequate care, but not more than required.While "acute care" is the now lowest category of bed assigned to hospitals, "sub-acute care" and "post-acute care" may soon become new categories of competition for patients between hospitals and nursing homes.

Mary Gerlich bounced Josias Lazo on a large red-and-blue rubber ball. Then she laid the 2-year-old on top of the ball and began to slowly roll it forward. Occasionally the toddler raised his head. "A few months ago his head fell forward or to one side when he raised it," said Gerlich, a physical therapist. "Now he's more in control of the way he holds his head. But he has to work at it." Gerlich was working with Josias, who was born prematurely, in a day care center she opened recently that caters to children with special needs.
