BACKGROUND

For more than 30 years, parents sought the professional opinion of Dr. Reginald Archibald concerning their children’s health and well-being. Regarded as one of the country’s leading endocrinologists, Archibald practiced at the RUH from 1941 until 1982 with a brief tenure at John Hopkins University in 1946 until 1948.

On October 5, 2018, RUH issued a statement reporting that Archibald “engaged in certain inappropriate conduct during patient examinations.” According to this statement, his inappropriate conduct during examinations was first reported in the 1990s and again in 2004. Following the 2004 allegations, an outside firm investigated Archibald’s conduct.

Earlier in 2018, another allegation was leveled against Archibald. This claim was examined by the same outside firm alongside the previous allegations and reinforced their previous findings that Archibald’s behaviors concerning the patients involved were inappropriate.
