This report takes the reader through 90 years of Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital history. The place formerly known as Happy Hills, started as a convalescent home for children in the 1920s but over the years transformed into a leading specialty hospital for children in the Baltimore region. It is affiliated with both Johns Hopkins Medicine and the University of Maryland Medical System.

Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital Annual Report FY 2011

  1. 1. ANNUAL REPORT: FISCAL YEAR 2011 90 Years of Healing and Growing
  2. 2. We salute our nine decades of serving children and their families with a look at our wonderful Child Life staff in Nine Reasons We Love Child Life. These child development experts help children navigate the stressful and uncertain waters of being in a hospital and coping with an illness, injury or disability. Financially, we have had a successful year, achieving a healthy fiscal margin in spite of the ongoing rise in healthcare costs and limits on reimbursements. We have achieved this strength by continuing to apply operational efficiencies wherever possible, while always focusing on the high quality care we provide to our children. In closing, we offer our continuing gratitude to you. Through the years, your devotion to the work of Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital—through your philanthropy, advocacy, and volunteerism—contrib- utes invaluably to the functioning of this institution and helps us carry out our mission: to maximize the health and independence of the more than 7,500 children we served in 2011. Dear Friends, This has been a special year for Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital—not only because of our staff’s continued dedication to providing premier care to our young patients, but also because 2011 is a very big milestone for us: it’s our 90th year as the place where children go to heal and grow. In this report, we’ll share some of the growth we have experienced in our clinical programs—through the eyes of two of our patients. We’ll also look at the growth we’ve experienced in the Center for Neonatal Transitional Care, where we began a major expansion in 2011 to serve more of our youngest patients. Also, we’ll tell you about the good work we have been doing in the Community Advocacy and Injury Prevention program and profile our two new board leaders. We’ll introduce you to two inspiring patients, one just five years old, and the other now a young woman: Although at different ends of the age spectrum, they share something in common: a battle against a sud- den, life-threatening illness. We’ll also tell you about two new devices that they’ve been using to great success: devices that we were able to acquire this year through generous contributions. The incorporation of devices such as these has enabled Mt. Washington Pediatric to evolve with the times, yet still provide the highest quality health care since 1922. As we continue to advance in meeting the needs of our region’s children, we see an increasing demand for services in such areas as our Sleep Clinic, which helps in the diagnosis of serious but treatable conditions like sleep apnea, and our Developmental Pediatric Services, which provide testing and evaluation of behavioral and psychological conditions such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Asperger’s Syndrome, and speech, language and learning delays, among others. Sheldon J. Stein President and CEO Lawrence C. Pakula, MD Chair, Board of Trustees 1
  3. 3. 2 1921 1922 Johns Hopkins social worker Hortense Kahn Eliasberg founds Happy Hills Convalescent Home for Children at home off Falls Road, a place for children who no longer needed hospital care, but were not ready to go home. An 11-acre estate is donated for the hospital by Edward Morris, the first vice president of Happy Hills. A Lifelong Love for Pediatrics hospital’s boards and inspiring a new cadre of hospital supporters. He also wants to build greater awareness of Mt. Washington’s important role in the community. “I have a long association with Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital as a practicing pediatrician,” he says. “And I know the leaders at both the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Health System feel strongly about the importance of this institution.” We are very fortunate to have an individual of Dr. Pakula’s experience, talents and conviction leading Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. It seems Dr. Lawrence C. Pakula has been preparing for his role as chairman of Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital’s Board his entire life. As the son of a pe- diatrician in Kansas City, Dr. Pakula had an early exposure to medicine. He decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, serving his internship and residency in pediatrics at Johns Hopkins. Upon completion, he was drafted into military service and served as Chief of Pediatrics at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines. During the Vietnam-era buildup, Dr. Pakula’s patient population grew rapidly, from two thousand to 10 thousand youngsters. As he treated the children of military families strug- gling with the stresses associated with separation, injuries and deaths, Dr. Pakula became determined to focus a significant portion of his practice on treating behavioral and developmental disorders in addition to general pediatrics. “I love being a pediatrician,” says Dr. Pakula. “I can’t imagine being in any other field of medicine.” Dr. and Mrs. (Sheila) Pakula have a long record of professional and community service. Dr. Pakula has been on the pediatric staff at Johns Hopkins, Sinai, GBMC and St. Joseph Hospitals and is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He has served in several capacities with the American Academy of Pediatrics and has testified before Congress, advocating legislation to improve access to childhood vaccinations. As Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital’s Board chair, Dr. Pakula’s goals include completing construction of the hospital’s Center for Neonatal Transitional Care, attracting a new generation of leadership to the

Sarah Beale, Child Life Specialist Why We Love Child Life 1930July 10, 1922 One year into the Great Depression, Happy Hills appeals for state aid. The Whitelock Estate on West Rogers Avenue is purchased and includes a mansion and room for expansion. Happy Hills welcomes first patient and is soon filled to capacity with eight boys and twelve girls. Just two years later, Happy Hills partners with Baltimore’s public school system. A teacher and school supplies are provided and a room is converted for classes. work with families and other health care providers to: • Prepare children for medical procedures/treatment and speak to kids in language they understand • Help children with coping strategies to reduce anxiety and enhance cooperation with the health care team • Coordinate school and community outings to work on problem-solving, social and life skills, memory, orientation and accessibility • Provide recreational therapy to help patients recover motor function, reasoning abilities, socialization skills and to build confidence • Answer family questions about developmental milestones, coping and adjustment, infant massage and safe car seat use. If your son or daughter were ever in the hospital, you would know how frightening it can be. It’s likely you were especially thankful for the skills and compassion of a Child Life and Therapeutic Recreation Specialist. These child development experts help hospitalized patients cope by offering education, activities for kids to express themselves, medical procedure support, assistance in reaching developmental milestones and other vital services. These degreed professionals establish treatment plans to address a patient’s psychosocial and developmental needs. Our Child Life staff are on duty seven days a week at both the W. Rogers Avenue and Prince George’s sites. Staff understand how important family support is for a patient to heal and grow.

  5. 5. Just like Our Patients, We’re Growing, Too! The Diagnostic Evaluation Clinic in the Division of Pediatric Psychology has expanded capacity, working with more families of children to help determine the nature of their behavioral, emotional or school con- cerns. Referrals consist of evaluation for diagnoses including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Learning Disability, Mood Regulation Disorder and related conditions. Each family meets with a psychologist to discuss their child’s test results, diagnoses, and appropriate recommendations. Recommendations are tailored to the specific needs of each child and assist parents, pediatricians, educators and other mental health practitioners in the appropriate treatment. For an appointment, call the intake and scheduling specialist at 410-578-5199. Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital is now one of only 217 hospitals in the country with a Stage 6 designation for electronic medical records. “We’re proud to be on the cutting edge, but the real achieve- ment is improved quality of care for our patients,” said Tim Brady, MWPH Director of Informa- tion Systems. HIMSS Analytics™ developed the Electronic Medical Record Adoption ModelSM (EMRAM) to evaluate the progress and impact of EMR systems for hospitals in their database. Medical Records Go Digital In spite of their challenges, patients can still take part in sports and leisure activities—whether it be wheelchair basketball or adapted golf. Adrienne Blizzard, Child Life Specialist, Clinical Specialist/ Therapeutic Recreation 4 October 22, 1930 1934 Happy Hills is dedicated. Dr. Wilfred H. Smith, Director of Johns Hopkins Hospital, writes to trustees: “Happy Hills has met a real need in Baltimore. I prophesy that the future will demand of you still further expansion.” Happy Hills staff expands to three doctors, a dentist, and additional nurses. More than 1,700 children receive specialized care. Creating Sweet Dreams To answer an increased demand for services, The Johns Hopkins Pediatric Sleep Center at Mt. Wash- ington Pediatric Hospital has expanded to include an additional sleep room. Our state-of-the art, child- friendly sleep laboratory operates seven days a week. We offer comprehensive evaluation and care for children with sleep-disordered breathing including: • Snoring and suspected obstructive sleep apnea • Known obstructive sleep apnea requiring CPAP or BiPAP therapy • Suspected sleep-related respiratory failure or apnea related to neuromuscular disease such as muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy • Conditions that increase the risk of sleep-disordered breathing such as obesity, Down syndrome, and achondroplasia. Each room contains a second bed for a caregiver to spend the night with the child. For an appointment in The Johns Hopkins Pediatric Sleep Center at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital, call 410-955-2035. Why We Love Child Life Photo: Danielle Onheiser, LPN referring to electronic medical records system.
  6. 6. It is rewarding to help infants reach their development milestones and grow stronger every day. 5 Polly Hurlburt, Child Life Specialist Striking the Right Balance: Demi’s Story organization, motor control, and stability. Floor sensors detect shifts in weight and measure balance. “One of the best things is, you can use it for objective evaluation and treatment,” says Garner. No other hospital in Maryland is using it for pedi- atrics. Children with cerebral palsy, coordination disorders, and traumatic brain injuries are good candidates for NeuroCom. “It really distinguishes us at Mt. Washington,” Garner says. It reminds some patients like Demi of the Wii FitTM game. “I like it,” she says, slowly forming a smile. In fact, her smile was what tipped off mom something was wrong. Around her birthday, Friedel pleaded for a photo: “Real smile. Come on, Demi.” But her daugh- ter’s face seemed droopy. Yet, the little girl insisted: “I’m doing it, Mom.” Within days, Demi was at Johns Hopkins. Doctors discovered bleeding in her brain stem. Her case was handled by renowned brain surgeons Drs. Ben Carson and George Jallo—Dr. Jallo performed the surgery and successfully removed the clot. “It was amazing,” says Gina. “In no time, she was back to her old self, joking.” After Hopkins, Demi began therapy at Mt. Washington. Therapists are working to strengthen Demi’s left- side and right-side motor skills. Her balance is much improved. She comes to Mt. Washington only twice a week now. “It takes time,” says Gina Friedel. “But we’re very, very optimistic.” For Balance Clinic information, call 410-578-5224. To schedule an appointment, call 410-367-2222. In a three-sided booth, Demi Friedel is surrounded by a mountain scene. On a computer screen, a figure skater moves side to side. “Get that skater in there,” says physical therapist Christy Garner. “It’s tricky be- cause the walls and floor are moving. Yes, you did it!” Just a month before, the 5-year-old Perry Hall girl fell down numerous times during this exercise. Since then, staff have seen much progress and are using measurable results to back them up. They can thank the NeuroCom Balance Master® . The hospital Foundation purchased the $100,000 device for Mt. Washington’s new Balance Clinic. It’s making a meaningful difference for children like Demi, recovering from brain surgery. “You can see such a big change,” says mom Gina Friedel.

Some of these volunteers are shown at left. Happy Hills celebrates its 20th anniversary. More than 2,700 children had been cared for since its opening. A new $45,000 wing includes a cardiac unit and is paid for through gifts. The Cardiac Unit opens November 1, 1938. Why We Love Child Life

Lois Bower, Manager Child Life and Therapeutic Recreation Department 6 I feel privileged to work with such a great staff— our department can have such a positive impact in the lives of so many children. 1952 1950s Richard F. Cleveland, eldest son of U.S. President Grover Cleveland and last original founding member becomes Board President. More patients admitted with polio. Happy Hills answers the patients’ needs with specialty areas of medicine, therapy, nutrition, education, and recreation. Improved technology means the addition of electrocardiograms and x-rays. Why We Love Child Life Left to right.: Frank Kelly III, Carole Sibel, Sheldon Stein, Don Hutchinson and John Kelly Samson Never Forgets Our Kids at MWPH it’s an excellent way for us to support a community treasure and to remind people of our important mission. In addition, our staff has taken part in other activi- ties at the Maryland Zoo, such as Bunny BonanZoo in the spring and Zoo Boo in October, when thou- sands of youngsters have fun and learn how to lead healthy and active lifestyles. We are proud to be a partner with the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore and to sponsor the zoo’s elephant exhibit. We believe the connection with the zoo, especially with “baby” elephant Samson (who is rapidly growing), symbolizes our chief goal: to help children heal and grow. Like our children’s hospital, the Zoo attracts a diverse group of youngsters and their parents—we believe
  8. 8. Healthy Living Academy at Coppin State University: The MWPH Center for Pediatric Weight Management and Healthy Living partnered with Coppin State University to provide nutrition and fitness education twice a week to more than 175 elementary through high school students in the Coppin-Rosemont neighborhoods. Walk of Love: The Covenant Guild held its 24th annual Walk of Love to benefit the hospital. Walkers stretched with BMore Fit’s Jon Kaplan before hitting the 1.5 mile course through Mt. Washington. The event has raised nearly $200,000 to help our patients. Fashion Fever Heats Up: Glam- our took center stage at the hospital’s spring benefit: Fashion Fever 2011. Held at the Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley, the event brought out area fashionistas and local celebrities, including WJZ’s Weijia Jiang and Adam May, the Ravens’ Melanie LeGrande and FOX 45’s Brian Jarosinski. Revved Up for Kids: There were smiles all around as The National Corvette Restorers Society Mason-Dixon Chapter, and the Blue Knights Int’l. Motorcycle Club brought their hot wheels to the hospital. Each has donated thousands of dollars to help our kids. Mt. Washington Goes to Annapolis: It was a proud day as MWPH was honored in March for 90 years of service to the community by the House of Delegates and State Senate in Annapolis. We thank Delegate Dr. Dan Morhaim (D-11th District) and Senator Lisa Gladden (D-41st District) for introducing the proclamations. 11th Annual MWPH Golf Tournament at Bulle Rock: Ra- vens standout Matt Stover was among the many golfers at the 11th annual Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital Golf Tour- nament in October 2010 at Bulle Rock. We’re thrilled to have such support for our patients. Spirit Moves Halloween Stores to Give: The Spirit of Children program brought out volun- teers and colorful costumes as the Spirit Halloween Superstores hosted their annual party. The chain has raised thousands of dollars, which has paid for, among other things, adjustable basketball hoops at the outdoor play court. Tuscan Dinner at Boordy: The hearty flavors of Tuscany were abundant in our fall 2010 fundraiser at Boordy Vineyards. MWPH supporters danced the night away after dining on Northern Italian cuisine and enjoying a variety of fine wines. 90 Years of Caring for Children Photos: Golf: Sen.

Caroline Langrall, Senior Child Life Specialist 7 September 19751960s Happy Hills becomes Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. Happy Hills celebrates 40th anniversary in 1962, having provided care for over 6,000 children. The Baltimore Sun noted “its likeness to a special pedi- atric hospital rather than a convalescent home.” Why We Love Child Life
  9. 9. come home. We also provide training for parents and other caregivers so they know how to manage their baby’s complex medical needs once they are home. In addition, the expanded endowment will provide income to fund new patient care initiatives, such as the Grow Your Own nurse training program, which provides specialty skills in pediatric nursing. It will also be used to purchase state-of-the-art equipment for treating inpatients with many medical issues, as well as help outpatients in the Diabetes Clinic, the Feeding Day Program, and the weight management program. We continue to approach potential campaign sup- porters with invitations to visit the hospital and see first-hand how this wonderful project is coming to life. If you would like to assist in this campaign or receive more information, please contact Brigid Kernan, Director of Development, at 410-578-5315. Caring for premature babies. Advanced training for nurses. Improving treatment for children with special needs. That’s what the Building for the Future of Every Child: the Campaign for Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital is all about. As of June 30, 2011, more than $8.2 million has been raised. The campaign’s $9.2 million goal comes with two objectives: renovating and expanding the Center for Neonatal Transitional Care (CNTC) and building the hospital’s endowment. When completed, the neonatal unit will serve an additional 100 premature infants and other babies with serious medical conditions each year. It means a total of 600 babies will be able to come here each year and receive the best specialty care possible. Also, the increased capacity will enable us to meet one of our region’s growing critical service needs, by bridging the gap from the intensive care unit to a place where families can see their babies grow strong and then Building for the Future of Every Child I love knowing that I not only help kids while in the hospital, but also with the transition home, into the community and back to school.

Accreditation awarded by Center for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). First children’s hospital in Maryland accredited for comprehensive inpatient rehab infant and early childhood development, and respite care. Groundbreaking marks the begin- ning of construction for a brand new hospital. Unfortunately the deterioration of the 100-year-old mansion left it too expensive to save. MWPH establishes Home Health Agency to extend care into homes of pediatric patients in Balti- more area. Why We Love Child Life
  10. 10. We are going through our own version of Extreme Makeover here at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital, thanks to the generous supporters who have donated to our Capital Campaign. We are pleased to update you on our progress: • The project began November, 2010 • 3rd floor office renovations are completed • 2nd Floor Center for Neonatal Transitional Care (CNTC) reception area is completed • CNTC Family Lounge with Murphy beds, full kitchen, and flat-screen TV is completed • 2nd Floor Family Resource Center is completed • CNTC patient unit renovations are on schedule The project is set to be completed at the end of 2012. If You Build It, They Will Come I enjoy teaching parents and caregivers infant massage to help with emotional bonding and sensory stimulation.

Outpatient Pediatric Pulmonary Clinic, Pediatric Neuropsychology program, and Psychiatry Day Treatment program are added. Respiratory and Security departments are brought “in-house.” A dressing change can be scary and painful for a child. By supporting and distracting the child, we can decrease the child’s fear. Kim Adkins, Senior Child Life Specialist Cierra Foxx: An Inspiration to All Instead, Cierra was transferred to Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital for a lengthy rehabilitation. “Initially, Cierra was unable to use her right side to write, dress herself, and walk,” says Long Clark, Senior Occupational Therapist. “Anyone would have compassion for her.” Cierra received inpatient therapy six times a week, using various splints, electrical stimulation, rigorous exercise, and small hand manipulations for dexterity. It was hard work, but she was dedicated to getting stronger. She now works with the Bioness® system to improve walking, balance and lower extremity strength. It was purchased through a $12,500 Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grant. “Cierra is one of our most inspiring patients,” says Kathy Gray, OT and Clinical Specialist in Acquired Brain Injury.“She can accomplish anything she puts her mind to.” Gray even helped Cierra find a driving rehabilitation course. She passed with flying colors. “Overall, I feel there’s nothing I can’t accomplish,” Cierra says. “Mt. Washington and everyone who’s helped along the way are my saviors. I’m very optimistic.” “She has really persevered,” says physiatrist Stephen Nichols, M.D. “I admire her determination to get stronger and more independent—Cierra has a bright future.” In fact, Cierra received her Associate’s Degree and has been accepted at Towson University. She plans to help others with medical conditions, so they too can accomplish their goals. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Program: • 410-367-2222 Cierra Foxx first noticed something felt strange at the bus stop, when her right arm and leg went to sleep. Hours later, she was limping. Her grandmother also noticed she was “talking funny” and called 911. An ambulance took Cierra to University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. She had suffered a stroke. She was only 17 years old. The American Academy of Pediatrics estimates that three children in 100,000 suffer a stroke each year. “At first I was in denial. I thought I would be the athletic person I was,” Cierra says. Why We Love Child Life

  13. 13. 12 2005 2006 Innovative Weigh Smart® program added as multi- disciplinary and holistic approach to pediatric weight management. Center for Pediatric Adolescent Rehabilitation (CPAR) renovations completed. It includes a child-friendly theme and transitional apartment for families. MWPH becomes jointly affiliated with University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Health System. MWPH: Why are you involved with Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital? FW: The kids! I’ve been in- volved with Mt. Washington since 1976 and I have seen this institution change a great deal. It’s more sophisticated and complex, but treating children with chronic conditions and helping them to go home healthier has remained a constant focus. MWPH: What makes this hospital different from other healthcare organizations? FW: Mt. Washington has some- thing exceptional about it—it’s the emotional warmth that permeates the institution. You feel it when you walk through the halls and speak with the staff. It’s very different from other hospitals. Mt. Washing- ton has a nurturing environment that everyone, but especially the kids, responds to. The hospital board is very aware of this unique quality and wants to maintain it even as we grow and change. MWPH: How has Mt. Washington changed over the years? FW: The hospital has evolved from a long-term care facility to a place where the focus is on getting children well enough to go home. When I first came, patients were here for months or sometimes years at a Fred Wolf III: Board Chair, MWPH Foundation time. Now, the average stay is only about a month. Today, our focus is on getting children back with their families. MWPH: As the new board chairman, what do you see as the Foundation’s role in relation to the hospital? FW: The Foundation plays an important role by participating in and leading the fundraising effort for Mt. Washington. It also provides seed money for launching and supporting new programs until they can be funded by the hospital’s budget. MWPH: What do you look for when you are seeking new Foundation board members? FW: We seek members with an interest in children, of course. And we want them to understand what’s happening at the hospital and what issues drive its operations and future, although the foundation board does not engage in medical discussions. And we like to bring on people with contacts in the community for fundraising. To find out about how you can help the Mt. Washington Pediatric Foundation, contact Brigid Kernan, at 410-578-5315.
  14. 14. Since our earliest days, Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital has taken on an active role in the community, providing education and programs to assist families and agencies catering to the needs of children. We also actively engage in advocacy in both the national and state legislative arenas. Community Advocacy Program In 2011, we saw major headway in our Commu- nity Advocacy and Injury Prevention Program. Through this program, Mt. Washington has made an impact on nearly five thousand Baltimore area families, providing education and tools to live a healthier life. Goals include lead poisoning prevention, nutrition, infant care and parenting skills. Also, in affiliation with UMMS, we took part in health fairs such as Spring into Good Health and Fall Back into Health. Mt. Washington clinicians and experts continued to reach out to the community in 2011, offering knowl- edge and skills to help families stay healthy and safe. Precious Cargo Child Safety Seat Check At MWPH, we take car seat installation seriously. Experts agree that child safety seats save thou- sands of lives every year, but only if installed correctly. That’s why we host the Child Safety Seat Check every year, and why our certi- fied technicians participate in more than two dozen others. We team up with area child safety experts to 90 Years of Service to the Community inspect dozens of vehicles for correct installation. We also provide Spanish-speaking technicians. SibShops of Maryland We are proud to serve as the lead agency for SibShops of Maryland. This interagency effort offers counseling and support to brothers and sisters of children with special needs. Sessions are a way for kids with similar family backgrounds to connect. Camp NOAH Baltimore city high school students attended a week-long program called Camp NOAH (Nursing and Other Allied Health). Participants are students ages 15-18 interested in pursuing a health care career. Students observe care practices while working directly with nurses, respira- tory therapists, child life specialists and other health care professionals. MWPH Goes to Washington In May, we joined dozens of other hospitals in Washington DC to advocate on behalf of children’s health care programs. Helping us to make our case was the Pelovitz family of Severn, MD. 6-year-old Nadiya lives with a complicated seizure disorder and global disabilities, and comes to MWPH for treatment. We thank the Pelovitz family for helping spread the word that the needs of children should not be forgot- ten in the health care debate.
