Dr. Nicholas J. Fortuin, a Johns Hopkins Hospital cardiologist who did early research in cardiac ultrasound and was recalled as a gifted teacher, died Sunday near his home in the Caves Valley section of Baltimore County. Family members said he had been bicycling. He was 69. "For generations of cardiology trainees at Hopkins, he came to epitomize clinical judgment and skill, and he brought to their education a healthy skepticism of new fads in a technology-prone specialty," said a close friend, Dr. Thomas Traill, a Hopkins cardiologist.

We are hitting two important milestones this month: the one-year anniversary of the official introduction of the House of Representatives health care bill and the awaited passage of comprehensive health care reform legislation. Now, as this exhaustive debate reaches its conclusion, we look back a year, and back 120 years to our founding principles. And hence, we at Johns Hopkins Medicine believe we're affirming a core belief in supporting passage of HR 3590, the Senate's health care reform bill, as well as accompanying legislation that is expected to take the form of a reconciliation bill.

Unlike the medical center that Johns Hopkins operates in Singapore, the new system will be designed not as competition for foreign doctors but as a service available to them.
