Annapolis, MD – Members of the Maryland General Assembly recognized Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital recently, for embarking on its 90th year of treating the children of the Baltimore region.
HR27 was introduced by District 11 Democrat Dan K. Morhaim in order to celebrate Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital’s decades of “providing care to children transferred from NICUs, Shock-Trauma and hospitals all over Maryland.”
Delegate Morhaim knows a thing or two about health care: He is the only medical doctor out of 187 members in the House of Delegates. Dr. Morhaim decided to recognize the hospital after taking a tour, which was led by MWPH VP of Medical Affairs Dr. Richard Katz.
The proceedings in the state house were followed by a similar recognition in the MD Senate. Senator Lisa Gladden of the 41st District introduced the Senate version of the resolution.
“We are thrilled about coming here and accepting this honor from the legislature,” Dr. Katz said. “On behalf of our very devoted staff, thank you very much.”
