Urology Outpatient Diagnostic Facility

A new 80,000-square-foot urology diagnostic outpatients facility is currently under construction. It will be located in the new Outpatient Center on the west side of Broadway directly across from the dome of the hospital. This center will provide comprehensive outpatient consultative and diagnostic facilities for the Medical Institutions and should be an enormous resource for patient care. For years, we have had inadequte space and now at last we will have a comfortable well-equipped unit to provide efficient care and the latest in modern imaging.

Although the Outpatient Center will be subsidized by both the hospital and the medical school, the expense of this new clinic will place a major burden on the department. Furthermore, these increased expenses are occurring at a time when federal reimbursement from Medicare for outpatient diagnostic care is being markedly reduced. Faced with the forecast of increased expenses to support the outpatient clinic along with reduced revenue, I am struggling to find a way to maintain the quality of our care without compromise. For this reason, I have decided to look for endowment to support this clinic so that we can continue placing the patient first and reimbursement second. The additional revenues necessary to fund this clinic will be in excess of $250,000 per year.

Contributions at any time, either now, in yearly installments, or through mechanisms such as trusts or bequests will all be appreciated. All contributions should be directed to the Urology Outpatient Center Endowment Fund, c/o Dr. Patrick Walsh, The Brady Urological Institute, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, Maryland 21205.
