Dr. Theodore Kardash, an obstetrician-gynecologist who had been head of gynecologic services at Maryland General Hospital and whose accomplishments as a physician were the pride of his Russian immigrant parents, died April 9 at the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home in St. Mary's County after complications from leg surgery.

Four patients treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital are likely to have contracted hepatitis C from a rogue medical technician accused of stealing drugs and leaving contaminated needles behind, lab tests have confirmed. Special molecular testing on blood specimens done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the patients were infected with strains of hepatitis C closely related to infections linked to David Kwiatkowski, state health officials said Friday. The new cases bring to five the number of people in Maryland believed infected by Kwiatkowski.

Four Maryland hospitals are offering free hepatitis C testing to at least 1,750 patients who may have been exposed to the viral disease by a traveling medical technician, as state officials launch a broad regulatory review in response to the case. The testing and review follow the arrest of David Matthew Kwiatkowski in New Hampshire last month. Authorities say he injected himself with stolen narcotics-filled syringes while working at a hospital there and left the contaminated needles to be re-used by unwitting staff in patients, infecting at least 30 people.

Warmth emanates from every corner of the bar: the improvised electric bass groove from the jazz quartet; the patrons' hearty laughs; the glowing orange sign above the bar, proudly announcing the arrival of one of the city's most promising new bars - Phaze 10. To call this new restaurant, bar and lounge on the western edge of Mount Vernon a pleasant surprise would be an understatement. Driving up North Howard Street, along the tracks of the light rail, there wasn't much to gaze upon: some vacant buildings, an antiques store, Maryland General Hospital.

Four Maryland hospitals will be contacting patients who might have come in contact with a health care worker infected with hepatitis C when he worked in the state between 2008 and 2010, according to the state health department. David Matthew Kwiatkowski, 32, who worked as a health technician, was arrested Thursday in New Hampshire, according to a statement on the FBI website. He was charged with illegally obtaining Fentanyl, a powerful anesthetic, and with infecting at least 30 people with hepatitis C at Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire, the FBI said.

The specialty hospital will provide only outpatient programs. The specialty hospital staff will be able to apply for open positions within the system, though it's unclear how many of the 350 employees will find jobs, according to state and hospital officials.

Construction is to begin this week on a $16.5 million apartment building at the southwest corner of Howard and Madison streets — one of the first residential projects to get under way on Baltimore's west side since the real estate slump began in 2008. The 74-unit building, called "M on Madison," is scheduled to open by August 2012 just south of Maryland General Hospital. The developer, HTA Development LLC of Columbia, is holding a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday. Public officials say the project is a "transit friendly," affordable development that will help energize the Howard Street corridor, which the city is seeking to revitalize with new housing, stores and offices.
