Also conveniently located near the harbor and central business district is the Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District, with the renovated Hippodrome Theatre featuring Broadway performers. Rising above the scene is the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower itself, built by the antacid inventor and later renovated to house 15 stories of artists' studios. The urban mix includes some 6,000 acres of parkland and 25 miles of waterfront, with public boat launches and piers for crab- bing and fshing. At least three yearly public rod-and-hook events are held, including the Fall Fishing Derby. Also notable is the work of mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who has mounted a SaferCity Campaign. Among strategies are public safety forums in police districts, as well as at town hall sessions and youth connection centers. There are also forums for young people to speak directly to administration and city leaders. Added to the mix is a new police commissioner who has streamlined the force for quicker responses to criminal activity. Mayor Rawlings-Blake also shepherds work toward a greener and healthier city. One thriving endeavor is the wellness program for city employ- ees, featuring a $250 health reimbursement beneft. This can be used for such items as gym mem- berships and eyeglasses and a new community-supported agriculture program with weekly farm-to-offce Baltimore Continued from previous page Live and Practice Soccer cities deliveries of fresh produce. "These are good examples of what happens when everyone works together, (in this case) a lot of good people who care deeply trying to do their best every day," says Daniel Atzmon, prevention specialist in the mayor's criminal justice offce. All of Baltimore's 11 hospitals have vigorously pursued the "health incentive," especially the interna- tionally known Johns Hopkins and the renowned University of Mary- land Medical System. Quaker merchant Johns Hopkins bequeathed a huge sum of money to be used for the hospital system that now bears his name. The frst building opened on May 7, 1889. Today the system includes six hospitals, some 30 outpatient care sites and four suburban health and surgery centers. Its heavy focus on research has produced many solu- tions and new surgical techniques, some of them nothing short of miraculous. Well-publicized in recent years has been the success of recently retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson, M.D., in separating con- joined twins. In 2012, W.P. Andrew, M.D., led a team to perform a double-arm transplant that was preceded by two years of planning. Among current striking research is development of a combination drug therapy that cures chronic hepatitis C in a majority of patients also infected with HIV. It's now in a phase three clinical trial. Yet another recent breakthrough has been coaxing adult stem cells to build themselves into a retina. Researchers hope this will lead to building other body parts as well. Meanwhile, with 12 general facilities and a pediatric hospital, UMMS is Maryland's largest health system and is accomplishing its goal of "reaching every part of the state and beyond," says Meghan Scalea, J oin the largest non-profi t health system in northeast Florida.
