Joining in a spate of hospital construction, Franklin Square Hospital Center in the White Marsh area is moving ahead with a $225 million project that will include a five-story patient tower, to be completed in 2010, that will replace more than 80 percent of the rooms in the current hospital. The project will add 37 beds to the hospital's licensed capacity of 353 and will expand the intensive care and emergency departments. Carl J. Schindelar, president of the hospital, said yesterday that emergency room visits have jumped 75 percent in the six years he's been on the job.

Hip dysplasia may not be obvious in newborns, but the disorder may already be affecting babies' development. And the sooner parents and caregivers get an evaluation and treatment, the easier the fix, according to Dr. Andrew Abramowitz, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center who trained in pediatric orthopedics. What is pediatric hip dysplasia and how common is it? Hip dysplasia (developmental dysplasia of the hip or DDH) is a spectrum of abnormalities of the ball and socket joint of the hip. It occurs in one in every 1,000 live births.

A Baltimore councilman plans to push a measure to rename a street after the 8-year-old boy who died after trying to save his siblings from a fire in the family's rowhouse. Decerio Coley threw his 4-year-old sister from a window into the arms of neighbors below when the fire spread through the house early Monday morning. While neighbors shouted at the boy to jump, too, Decerio instead went back in to save his brother, Sean McCullough, 7. The 7-year-old was killed, while Decerio was critically injured and taken off life support the next day. The younger sister, however, survived unharmed.

Baltimore's NAACP president said the city's gun violence affects a wide range of residents, even if the victims themselves tend to be involved in the drug trade.  On Monday, Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said gun violence was "localized" and "not throughout the city as a whole. " He said "80 to 85 percent" of the victims are black men involved in the drug trade, and said "everyday citizens" saw crime, such as burglary and car break-ins, drop in 2013.  Through a spokesman, Batts has declined to clarify or elaborate on the comment.

It was really great to read The Sun article about Peter Angelos' donation to the Franklin Square's lung center ("Angelos donates $2.5M for lung center at Franklin Square," Nov. 21). I have listened to all the negative voices calling for his head since he bought the Orioles to keep them the Baltimore Orioles. Mr. Angelos is the poster boy of the American dream, rising from a humble Greektown family to one of the most successful lawyers in the country. He never turned his back on his city or his state, and he continues to "redistribute the wealth" in a profound, personal way. Over the years he has shunned the publicity for the myriad donations he has made to various organizations throughout Maryland.

Peter Angelos, the personal injury lawyer who owns the Baltimore Orioles, donated $2.5 million to MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center to establish a lung disease treatment center in his name, he and hospital officials announced Wednesday. The gift, the largest single donation in the hospital's 115-year history, will more than pay for renovating a 3,000-square-foot space where doctors from various disciplines related to lung disease will collaborate and see patients. Those diseases include cancers like mesothelioma that are caused by asbestos exposure, the specialty of Angelos' Baltimore law firm.
