Can anybody explain why Johns Hopkins is liable for any of the reprehensible actions of Dr. Nikita Levy ( "Attorney says Hopkins was informed of improper exams before investigation," Sept. 26)? Why is Johns Hopkins Medicine agreeing to pay anything to the victims of Dr. Levy's serious transgressions? Was Johns Hopkins in any way responsible for the harm that was caused to Dr. Levy's victims? In all of the reporting on this case I have never heard one thing that would indicate Dr. Levy's actions were allowed or caused or in any way made possible by Johns Hopkins.

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."

Anna Whetstone, 23, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 17. She was a high school junior in Hershey, Pa., playing on her school's field hockey team when she got hit in the head with a ball. "I was feeling fine at the time," she said, but over the next few days she had trouble with balance and "wasn't feeling well overall. " Computed tomography scans and an MRI discovered the telltale lesions that are signs of the degenerative disease. After the diagnosis, Whetstone switched from playing to coaching field hockey, but she continued dancing and she earned a neuroscience degree, with honors, at Moravian College in Pennsylvania.

It's part of an effort to make the hospital experience more patient-focused, Hopkins officials said Thursday on the first tour given to the news media since construction began five years ago on the 1.6 million-square-foot building, which will replace aging facilities on the East Baltimore medical campus.

Johns Hopkins Hospital lost its coveted spot as the nation's top-ranked hospital for the first time in 22 years, edged out by Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital in the latest analysis by U.S. News & World Report to be released Tuesday. 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.

The dean of Johns Hopkins Medicine met with graduating students Monday about their opposition to neurosurgeon Ben Carson as commencement speaker after his controversial remarks about same-sex marriage. A spokeswoman for Hopkins would not say what was discussed between the students and Dr. Paul B. Rothman, calling the meeting private. Spokeswoman Kim Hoppe said that Carson is still scheduled as commencement speaker and said reports saying otherwise were "speculation. " The meeting came three days after Rothman said in a letter to the Hopkins community that Carson's comments about same-sex marriage were "hurtful" and against the culture of the medical institution.
