So glad to take part in the May 16 groundbreaking for the Surgery, Radiology and Laboratory Medicine (SRLM) wing of the NIH Clinical Center. The expansive new wing will house: the Department of Perioperative Medicine; Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Department of Laboratory Medicine, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s Cardiovascular Intervention Program; several National Cancer Institute laboratories; and patient service areas. As shown here at the podium, we were honored to be joined by Andrea Palm, deputy secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Also pictured (left to right): Dan Wheeland, NIH associate director for Research Facilities; Nina Schor, NIH deputy director for Intramural Research; James Gilman NIH Clinical Center CEO; me; Steven Rosenberg, chief, Surgery Branch, National Cancer Institute; and Alfred Johnson, NIH deputy director for Management. Modernizing the Clinical Center will help to ensure that this amazing facility continues to provide high quality patient care alongside cutting-edge biomedical research.
