ONE FEAR expressed when Howard County General Hospital agreed three months ago to a merger with Johns Hopkins Medicine was that it would be consumed by the behemoth and lose its local character. In announcing the completion of the deal last week, the principals sought to erase that concern by announcing that the name of the hospital won't change. Howard General will remain Howard General, but the Johns Hopkins logo will be added to its stationery and signs.That little concession can go a long way toward smoothing the transition into "a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine."

Rothman comes from the smaller and lesser-known University of Iowa, where he is dean of the Carver College of Medicine and leads the university's clinical practice plan.
