Wilmer Eye Institute building to be dedicated on Friday

The Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins will hold a dedication ceremony for the 207,000-square-foot, $105 million, ultramodern Robert H. and Clarice Smith Building at 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16. The new Wilmer building includes six of the most modern ophthalmic operating rooms in the world, five floors dedicated to research and artwork donated by grateful artists who owe their sight to Morton Goldberg, former head of the Wilmer Eye Institute. The building is located on the corner of Broadway and Orleans Street.
