Joining in a spate of hospital construction, Franklin Square Hospital Center in the White Marsh area is moving ahead with a $225 million project that will include a five-story patient tower, to be completed in 2010, that will replace more than 80 percent of the rooms in the current hospital. The project will add 37 beds to the hospital's licensed capacity of 353 and will expand the intensive care and emergency departments. Carl J. Schindelar, president of the hospital, said yesterday that emergency room visits have jumped 75 percent in the six years he's been on the job. Last year, Franklin Square handled 98,000 ER visits, prompting the hospital to put stretchers in a hallway to accommodate patients.

One person died, and two others were taken to a local hospital after a fishing boat capsized in Essex Wednesday, according to Natural Resources Police. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources officials have identified the man who died as James Christopher Bills, 24, of Essex. Bills and two friends had gone fishing around 2:30 p.m. in a motorless 12-foot jon boat near Cox's Point pier in the 800 block of Riverside Drive, and when they came out of the creek into the main stem of backriver, they were met by 10-15 mph winds and 2-3-foot waves, natural resources police spokeswoman Candus Thomson said.

Relatives of an elderly woman who died at Franklin Square Hospital Center from injuries after her arms -- which had been locked across her chest -- were pried apart, filed a $10 million lawsuit yesterday against the hospital and the nurse they believe is responsible for her death. The lawsuit, filed yesterday in Baltimore County Circuit Court by attorney Marvin Ellin, alleges negligence and is based partly on a report by the Maryland Office of Health Care Quality. The agency launched an inquiry into practices at Franklin Square after Ruth F. Bowen died there Nov. 6. That report uncovered "moderate deficiencies" at the hospital during and shortly after Bowen's death, said Carol Benner, the agency's director.
