Children's National Med. Center to expand

By Washington Post editors

Children’s National Medical Center received the go-ahead from D.C. health regulators this week to begin work on its first major expansion since the current hospital was built in 1976, The Washington Business Journal reports.

According to a letter dated Aug. 23, the District’s State Health Planning and Development Agency granted the pediatric hospital a certificate of need for renovations to its original building, which will create an intensive care unit specifically for children born with serious heart defects.

Health care (transformation) is one of the best issues this current administration has done thus far. With this change individuals will have the opportunity to seek professional and quality health care services. Who would want to return to the days of the horse and buggy, b/w tv sets, manual typewriters, pac man, you get the point? That's about how old the health care system was in the USA. Each day the news is filled with social tragedies in which lives are taken at the hands of known acquaintences and/or family members. Our society is stricken with the institutions of white collar crime permeating throughout this great nation and greed which tends to strike at the very fabric of our country. If you are looking for affordable health insurance check out http://bit.ly/9fDY7U . I hope everyone will soon recognize and use the resources made by this transformation to seek professional medical attention as the need arises rather than turning to illegal and criminal activities to resolve their issues.
