In an extraordinary blow to the agency that oversees Maryland's hospitals, the state's highest court rejected yesterday a plan for a new open-heart-surgery center in the Washington suburbs and charged that regulators employed "palpable fiction" in determining its need. The Maryland Court of Appeals' 4-3 ruling overturns a Howard County Circuit Court decision and stops Suburban Hospital in Bethesda from opening a center, much sought after for the revenue and prestige it would produce. The Maryland Health Care Commission, which approved the new center in December, said yesterday that it and its predecessors had never before been overruled in their more than 20 years of existence.

MedStar Health is asking a court to block new open-heart surgery regulations, charging that the Maryland Health Care Commission "arbitrarily and capriciously `cooked the books' " to justify an additional open-heart program in Maryland's Washington suburbs. MedStar, with headquarters in Columbia, owns seven hospitals, including Washington Hospital Center, which runs the dominant heart surgery program in the District of Columbia and its Maryland suburbs. MedStar also does open-heart surgery at Georgetown University Hospital, and is hoping for that program to grow.

"Mr. Ferralli's back!" some pupils shouted as they entered his classroom. They hadn't seen him since September, when he abruptly left school one morning to rush to Washington Hospital Center for a heart transplant. After two weeks in the hospital and four long months at home, the technical education teacher returned to the classroom yesterday.
