Q. My mom was a patient at the Babies Hospital in the early 1940s and I found your article while trying to help her find out more about some health issues stemming from that period. My question: Are medical records from Babies Hospital still available somewhere?

A. Our research indicates that those records have been purged. Neither the New Hanover Public Library nor New Hanover Regional Medical Center have any records from Babies Hospital.

If readers know that records do exist and where to find them, please let us know in the Comments section below.
