Back Before “Bayview”

You asserted that Roy Ziegelstein, M.D., who recently received the Theodore E. Woodward Award for teaching excellence, was the “only member of the Hopkins faculty to have received teaching awards from the house staff at both Hopkins Hospital and Bayview” (“Who/What,” March). In fact, Steven Schulman, M.D., was the first and only other person to receive pan-Hopkins Hospitals house staff teaching awards in 1991 when Bayview was called the Francis Scott Key Medical Center.

Magnifico!

Your article on Maya Angelou (“My Oh My Oh Maya!”, February) is magnificent. It makes her come alive. I love her poetry, and I have an addiction to buying her cards.

Bariatric Surgery and EHP

I found your article (“A Gain for Weight-Loss Surgery”, March) a very interesting read. More interesting is the fact that the Employee Health Plan now denies this surgery for Hopkins employees. The only exception is if you have “high option” and then you have to pay the first $1,000.

EHP Responds

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center has a medical plan with EHP, and it does cover bariatric surgery. However, the benefit is different from that of employees at The Johns Hopkins Hospital who have the basic or premium EHP plan. For more information, congtact your benefits/HR office or EHP customer service at 410-424-4450.
