Letter from Our Medical Editor

(From Pediatric Directions, Issue 39)

Pediatric Directions Subscribers:

In 2012, Nationwide Children’s Hospital celebrated a couple of major milestones. In addition to providing premier health care to children for 120 years, we completed the largest pediatric hospital expansion in the United States. By adding 2.1 million square feet to Nationwide Children’s downtown campus, we are now the fourth largest pediatric hospital and research center in the country.

In this issue of Pediatric Directions, in addition to sharing more information with you regarding our unprecedented growth, our physicians share remarkable case studies about the patients they have treated in the articles listed below.

  • Improving Quality of Life for Patients with Congenital Hand Differences
  • Treating Patients with End-Stage Lung Disease
  • Aneurysmal Bone Cysts: New Options, New Treatments, New Hope
  • Dealing with Learning Disabilities and Convergence Insufficiency

On a personal note, this will be my last issue as medical editor for Pediatric Directions. I’ve had the privilege of working with a dedicated editorial board, and a variety of wonderful authors for more than 20 years. In each and every issue we’ve developed as a team, I’ve marveled at the expertise and day. Although they provide premier care routinely, they know that each case is unique and most often anything but routine.

Nationwide Children’s physicians, thank you for your time and devotion, demonstrating that “Everything Matters.” Also, thank you to all our subscribers of Pediatric Directions. Over the years, many of you have taken time to provide feedback which has helped us make each issue better than the last.

Sincerely,
Gary L. Rogers, MD
