The Johns Hopkins Health System combines three acute care hospitals with a network of primary and specialty care practices, outpatient care, long-term care and home care throughout Maryland.
The Johns Hopkins Hospital
The new 1.6 million-square-foot complex was one of the largest hospital construction projects in the nation. It marks a new era in patient care at Johns Hopkins. It features two 12-story towers:
- The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center, named in honor of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s late mother
- The Sheikh Zayed Tower, named to honor the first president and founder of the United Arab Emirates. There are 560 all-private patient rooms, 33 state-of-the-art operating rooms, and expansive new adult and pediatric emergency departments.
For more than a century, patients have come from around the corner and around the world to receive the most advanced care at Hopkins, the place where modern medicine was born. Patients and their families will now experience a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility designed from the ground up to house the most innovative and advanced medical technologies and also provide a cheerful, welcoming environment for patient-centered care.
Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center is a new, state of the art medical center located on a beautiful 130 acre suburban campus in eastern Baltimore. Uniquely positioned, the facility serves both an urban and county population.
Often described as the quintessential Emergency Medicine training ground, the residents rave about their Bayview experience which consists of "core" emergency medical cases. The depth and breadth of the experience is unmatched. The high prevalence of vascular disease, chronic illness, and trauma provide substantial clinical experience and prepares our trainees to practice in any clinical environment.
Staffed by Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, University faculty, residents, and fellows, this community medical center has the best of what Hopkins has to offer.
The Emergency Department (ED) at Bayview sees over 50,000 patients per year and consists of 22 beds, an ENT exam room, OBGYN room, four critical care/trauma bays, and a separate eight-bed Fast Track. The ED evaluates both adult and pediatric patients. The medical center is the State of Maryland adult burn referral center. In addition to being a Level II Trauma Center, the campus is the location for the Hopkins division of Critical Care medicine and the world renowned center for geriatrics. The NIH is currently building one it's largest clinical and research facilities on the campus.
Howard County General Hospital
Howard County General Hospital is a non-academic community hospital located in suburban Columbia, Maryland. Opened in 1973, the original 59-bed short-stay hospital has grown into a 208-bed comprehensive acute-care medical center specializing in:
- Women's and children's services
- Emergency services
- Community health education
In July 1998, Howard County General Hospital (HCGH) joined Johns Hopkins Medicine.
At HCGH, Hopkins Emergency Medicine residents rotate in both the adult and pediatric emergency departments, where they get a true taste of community emergency medicine.
The patient care area includes a total of 48 treatment beds. Within this configuration are three separate treatment areas. The 18-bed adult acute treatment area includes four critical care rooms, one GYN room, two psychiatric seclusion rooms and one isolation room. The adult urgent care area is comprised of 18 beds, incorporating eight fast-track beds, one isolation room and one GYN room. The pediatric emergency care area is comprised of 12 beds, containing one critical care and two psychiatric/non-seclusion rooms. On average, the ED treats 175 patients per day.
