The former Gladys Spellman Specialty Hospital and Nursing Center, located for 43 years adjacent to Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly, has moved to Laurel Regional Hospital and has a new name. The Gladys Spellman Specialty Care Unit, or GSSCU, on the fourth-floor of Laurel Regional Hospital received patients transferred from the old facility June 30. The new unit has 46 licensed specialty care beds and offers comprehensive care for adults whose health care needs require more than what can be provided in a home environment or a nursing home.

Laurel Regional Hospital officials are in the development stage of a major project that focuses on tackling women's health issues in a big way. According to hospital officials, they hope to soon open a one-stop facility, separate from the main building, dedicated to comprehensive health care for area women. "Women are the biggest health care consumers and a comprehensive center for their health care does not exist in Prince George's County," said John Spearman, Laurel Regional's president and chief operating officer.

The proposal to move Adventist Hospital from Takoma Park to Calverton/Silver Spring can only have a devastating impact upon Laurel Regional Hospital. The new hospital would be only 6.1 miles away from Laurel and would draw from the same neighborhoods. According to filings by Dimensions, Laurel's operator, a new hospital so close would cause Laurel Regional Hospital to lose: 11.8 percent of medical/surgical patients; 4.9 percent of obstetrics patients; 12.4 percent of psychiatric patients; $8.5 million in gross revenue; and the growth opportunities associated with the Konterra development, BRAC realignment and the opening of the ICC and interchanges at I-95 and Contee Road (now Van Dusen)

At first thought, a hospital coming so close to Laurel Regional Hospital does sound unfair, and could be a risk to Laurel Regional Hospital's actual existence ("Hospital's proposed move could hurt Laurel Regional Hospital," Letters, Aug. 18). I speak from experience both as a past patient and having had a parent there, by ambulance, two weekends in a row with heart concerns. On the second visit, I spoke to someone in cardiology who said, "If this was my father, I would get him out of here; we can't help him. " I did, and he went to Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park.

Washington Adventist Hospital was very disappointed to see the Aug. 17 letter to the editor that contained serious inaccurate information regarding our proposed relocation and our plan to expand access to health care in the region ("Hospital's proposed move could hurt Laurel Regional Hospital"). Washington Adventist Hospital has never stated that our move would have a devastating impact on Laurel Regional Hospital. In fact, language about the future of Laurel as an in-patient facility that came up during hearings before the Maryland Health Care Commission came directly from the May 21, 2010, "Final Report and Recommendations" from the Prince George's County Hospital Authority.
