An intensive care unit nurse in a small-town hospital on the Eastern Shore suspected that a patient had necrotizing fasciitis, the so-called "flesh-eating" disease. The condition is rare. Even experienced intensive-care doctors seldom see it, and, since it was nighttime, no such physician was in the ICU. Pinning down the diagnosis was critical - and in this case Berlin's Atlantic General Hospital had backup. A critical-care doctor 125 miles away was monitoring the patient's health via voice, video and high-speed data lines constantly streaming information about vital signs, medications, test results and X-rays, a telemedicine service known as University of Maryland eCare.

Blacksburg, Va. -- Caught between hope and dread, friends and relatives of the injured descended yesterday on a small community hospital in Blacksburg that had never seen anything like yesterday's flood of patients. Montgomery Regional Hospital, a 146-bed facility just miles from campus, treated students with gunshot injuries and others who suffered broken bones after they leapt from classroom windows to escape the approaching gunman. Seventeen victims, all of them students, were taken to the community hospital; one was dead on arrival.

At Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, the medical director has pored over patient records to determine which antibiotics are to blame for a potentially fatal infection. In Ohio, physicians at Akron General Medical Center are experimenting with rats to determine whether a popular painkiller also slows the spread of cancerous cells. And in Los Angeles, doctors at Cedars Sinai Medical Center are teaching computers to interpret heart scans. Across the country, tighter finances and tougher competition are prompting many community hospitals to move beyond their core business of administering tests and performing surgery.

Howard County General Hospital, buoyed by its Johns Hopkins affiliation, is in the middle of a $34 million expansion spree, but it's nothing compared with what's on the way. It opened a high-tech intensive care unit last year and stocked it with massaging beds. Last month, it unveiled a emergency care department triple the size of the old one. A maternal child facility arrives next month. And next year, expect the diagnostic imaging department to appear between April and June. That's phase one of the strategic master plan, which envisions the hospital as a major player in health care.

When the new Annapolis Emergency Hospital opened July 18, 1902, the first patient was J.M. Bowers, the foreman of a crew of stonemasons working on construction of the Court of Appeals building. Injured on the job, Bowers was treated at the two-story, white frame converted residence with 11 beds and a commanding view of Spa Creek. A century later, the hospital that is now Anne Arundel Medical Center has lost its enviable view. But it has also shed its longtime reputation as a small-town, community hospital and grown into a regional medical center on a sprawling 104-acre site.
