A Lifelong Love for Pediatrics 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’t2 imagine being in any other field of medicine.” hospital’s boards and inspiring a new cadre of Dr. and Mrs. (Sheila) Pakula have a long record of hospital supporters.
