At HCGH, Everything's Coming Up Babies
The economy may be in a slump, but the baby business at Howard County General Hospital is alive and kicking. In a county with a population hovering near 300,000, a hospital expecting 3,300 births this year is bound to get some oohs and aahs. In fact, stork visits to the Columbia-based community hospital are more numerous than those to Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center combined-enough to push it to number five in the state of Maryland.

Kim Barnes, administrative coordinator of obstetric services at HCGH, says the maternal child unit normally averages 260 births a month, but in April that number peaked at 318 for the first time in the hospital's 30-year history.
