Doctor Show Debut

Those suffering from withdrawal following ABC-TV’s Hopkins miniseries will have another opportunity to get inside the heads of physicians as they try to balance work and life, thanks to a show produced by PBS. Called Doctors’ Diaries, the two-part program—which airs on NOVA on April 7 and 14, at 8 p.m.—follows a group of seven doctors from their first day at Harvard Medical School in 1987.

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center recently announced its largest-ever private gift: 3.15 acres of land at 5400 E. Lombard St., donated by Baltimore businessman Jim Crystal and his family. Valued at $3.125 million, the land, says Crystal, “will allow the hospital to expand even further and continue doing great things.” For the past 25 years, Crystal has owned and operated Lui Corp., an office furniture manufacturing business adjacent to the Bayview campus. He said that over the years he’s watched the medical center evolve into a thriving institution that improves patients’ lives.
