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."

At the ding of a cowbell Sunday, staffers in a command center at the Johns Hopkins Hospital began clapping and yelling out victory cheers. Another department had begun to transfer patients as part of a massive move from Hopkins' aging hospital building to a towering $1.1 billion facility next door. The complicated process, which centered on the delicate task of relocating sick patients, was running according to plan. The official opening Tuesday of the two 12-story towers will mark the final step in the largest hospital project in Maryland history.

Dr. Edward Miller, who has overseen a vast expansion of Johns Hopkins Medicine — on Baltimore's east side and in countries around the world — since taking over as dean and chief executive in 1997, said Thursday that he will retire next year. Miller, 68, has built a medical powerhouse, with six hospitals, including All Children's Hospital in Florida, several suburban health care and surgery centers, and more than 30 primary and specialty health care facilities — many of which he helped bring into the fold.
