Mt. Washington Moves

Following a two-month closure, Medical Archives, formerly at 2024 E. Monument St., has reopened in a dramatically different setting—Mt. Washington. Also exiting East Baltimore for the Mt. Washington campus: Emergency Medicine’s divisions of research, special operations and CEPAR—60 people in all. In February, IT @ Johns Hopkins and all its 320 employees, most of whom are based at Eastern, will make the move. All will join HopkinsOne, JHM International, JHHS Legal, CTY and the Data Center—about 970 employees altogether.

Walks for a Cause

Talk about working overtime. This fall, employees pounded the pavement, walking hundreds of miles to raise funds for causes that touch them on a daily basis. On Sept. 10, JHMI was the top corporate fund-raiser for the 2005 Walk to Cure Diabetes, collecting more than $40,000 for the JDF. On Oct. 1, at the Susan G. Komen Maryland Race for the Cure, Hopkins represented the largest group of participants (600) and donated $25,600. On Oct. 29, some 335 Hopkins walkers raised approximately $44,000 for the American Heart Association Heart Walk. Keep on truckin’.

Valet Parking

The closing of the Broadway Garage has meant more traffic in the Wolfe Street circle, not only because more are dropping off patients there, but also because it is now the staging area for valet parking. Judging by the numbers, the fledgling service, operated by a private company, is already a huge hit. In its third week of operation (mid-November), staff parked 118 cars in just one day. The shuttle service from the Outpatient circle to the Wolfe Street circle has not enjoyed such robust usage, but with winter weather, that is expected to change.

OB Challenge

St. Agnes Hospital in Catonsville has bought an Ob/Gyn practice with eight obstetricians who once delivered babies exclusively at Howard County General Hospital. About 3,200 babies are delivered at HCGH each year, and no fewer than 900 of them were brought into the world by this formerly independent practice. Now, all the group’s deliveries are being done at St. Agnes. HCGH has responded with an ad featuring a ferocious traffic jam on I-95 North. “Contractions every minute?” the text reads. “We deliver close to home.”
