    Hi Diane,

    We were wondering if you could include http://www.healthline.com as a resource on http://hospitals4health.org/patient-resources/national/

    Healthline provides a comprehensive overview of over 1000 health conditions for individuals and/or their loved ones. All information has been reviewed for medical accuracy by an MD.

    For more information, visit: http://www.healthline.com

    Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    Warm Regards,

    Tracy
