MEDICAL AND SURGICAL
We are deeply grateful to our old friend, Dr. W. B. Rogers
Beasley, who returned to relieve Dr. Mary L. Wiss for a much
needed vacation during the summer. When Dr. Wiss returned
from her holiday she was joined by Dr. Mary Pauline Fox as
· Assistant Medical Director. These two fine physicians have been
in residence at Hyden throughout the year.
Our whole area suffered a loss when Dr. Karl Yaple, our
_ consultant pediatrician in Harlan, joined the Armed Services.
” We extend our warm thanks to Dr. Doane Fischer of Harlan
. who takes time from his busy schedule to give pediatric lec-
A tures to our student nurse-midwives and to act as our pediatric
a consultant for acutely ill children. The pediatric residents from
I the Cincinnati Childre11’s Hospital came to the mountains to
hold clinics and seminars for our nursing staff. We are grateful
to the Children’s Hospital for the free care given our children
who are referred to the specialists for investigation and care.
In September our good friend, Dr. Thomas B. Grossman of Mil-
_ waukee, Wisconsin, returned to give us another tonsil clinic.
; Dr. David B. Stevens of Lexington has continued to hold ortho-
pedic clinics and Dr. Harold Rosenbaum, Chairman of the Depart-
ment of Radiology at the University of Kentucky, continues to
- read our x-rays as a courtesy. It is impossible to name all the
physicians, both in and out of the mountains, who have given
their services to patients referred to them during the year. We
]( are most appreciative of the many kindnesses shown us by so
I many. _
tp We Welcome the help that has been given to us during the
  year by the various divisions of the Kentucky State Department
1 of Health. We are especially grateful for the help we have
j received with all the ramifications of the Medicare and Medicaid
A programs. It has been a pleasure for members of our staff to
» work with Dr. Margaret Livingood and members of her staff in
  the Maternal and Infant Care program which is under way in
;  several counties in eastern Kentucky. We wish to make special
. mention of the help given us by the medical specialists in the
i various departments at the University of Kentucky Medical Cen-
 j ter to whom we refer many of our medical problems.
