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."

Hopkins still ranked No. 2, and marketing experts said falling one spot will hurt the hospital's ego more than its reputation. "They'll survive this, I'm sure," said Roger Gray, founder and partner of GKV, an advertising and marketing firm in Baltimore.
