This is to express our appreciation for the excellent cover article by Mary Anne Perez on the replacement project for the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center ("Growing Pains," June 12). The article accurately portrayed the dilemma faced by those of us responsible for inpatient and outpatient care for thousands of residents in the areas surrounding the medical center, and beyond. Given the federal mandate to construct a new hospital or face closure, we must proceed with the project to replace our antiquated facilities.

We read with interest the article, "Hey, Dr. Spock--Here's Dr. Mom" (by Ann Japenga, June 1), about Dr. Marianne Neifert. We know Dr. Neifert is a strong advocate of breast-feeding. However, we take exception to the parenthetical statement that St. Luke's Women's Hospital's lactation clinic "is the only one of its kind in the country." Dr. Audrey Naylor's lactation clinic in San Diego, the first in the country, was featured in an article in The Times last year. Our own Breast-feeding Infant Clinic at the Pediatric Pavilion of the Los Angeles County-University of Southern California Medical Center has been in existence since 1978.

Spread over a few acres of rolling land in Boyle Heights, near downtown Los Angeles, is a bigger-than life model of the best and the worst of America's health care system. At the foot of one small hill is the Los Angeles County-University of Southern California Medical Center.

Dr. Helen Martin, a pioneer in diabetes care and a longtime USC professor of medicine who was a role model for generations of medical students, has died. She was 100. Martin died of natural causes Saturday at an assisted-living community for seniors in Pasadena, said Joyce Spence, Martin's niece. A childhood victim of polio who used a cane, Martin developed an early interest in medicine because she spent so much time in hospitals while growing up.

In a society that fairly reeks of technological advances, birth control seems stuck in the '60s. On the surface, it appears the contraceptive revolution that ushered in the birth control pill has come to a screeching halt. For almost three decades, women and men have had to be content with the same limited choices. Can we hope for more options in the immediate future?
