MWPH Doctors Recognized as Top Docs by Baltimore Magazine

MWPH Doctors Recognized as “Top Docs” by Baltimore Magazine

Dr. Virginia Keane

BALTIMORE, MD (Oct. 30) – Five doctors who practice at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH) were recognized as “Top Doctors” in the November 2015 issue of Baltimore magazine. 

These five doctors include:

The results are based on a Baltimore magazine survey of nearly 12,000 physicians in the Baltimore area, including Baltimore City and the surrounding seven counties, asking where they would send a member of their family in hundreds of specialties. Many doctors would choose to send their loved ones to MWPH.

In addition to the list of “top doctors” from the Baltimore region, Dr. Keane was featured in a call-out story which focused on the unique challenges of her work with medically-complex children.  At MWPH, Dr. Keane sees children with multisystem diseases and manages their care across multiple specialties. 

“I am delighted, but not surprised, to see our doctors recognized by their peers,” said Dr. Richard Katz, chief medical officer at MWPH and an advisor to the magazine for the “Top Docs” feature.  “They know, as our patient and families do, that our healthcare is delivered with compassion and collaboration.”
