During Care: What to Expect
The Johns Hopkins Medical Campus
The Johns Hopkins medical campus is located east of downtown Baltimore and includes hospital facilities, research laboratories, classrooms and offices. All throughout the campus, there are services to make your stay more comfortable.
Your International Care Coordinator
Your international care coordinator will be at your side to answer all your questions, provide language interpretation and accompany you to your appointments. He or she will seamlessly blend your medical needs, your individual preferences and your cultural, linguistic and religious expectations into a tailored experience that makes Johns Hopkins feel as close to home as possible.
Arriving at Johns Hopkins
Before you travel, your international medical concierge will give you clear instructions on when and where to come on your first day at Johns Hopkins. Unless you’ve made other arrangements, you’ll meet your international care coordinator in the Executive Lounge.
The Executive Lounge
The Executive Lounge is a quiet, friendly place for you to relax between appointments, read newspapers from your home country, check e-mail and ask questions. You’ll find us in Suite 1094 on Level 1 of the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center, from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Health Care in the United States
Health care in the United States may be different than in your home country—and care at an academic medical center is sometimes different than at a community hospital.
At Johns Hopkins, a team of experts will determine the tests necessary to diagnose your condition, decide what the best course of treatment will be, and prescribe the medications you receive.
Dining, Shopping and Sightseeing
For your convenience, many hotels are located close to shopping and dining areas. Washington, D.C.—less than an hour from Baltimore—also offers many shopping, sightseeing and dining options. Our staff will be happy to provide you with information and special discounts.
