Were you born at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda in 1943 or 1944? If so, the hospital wants to hear from you.

To commemorate its 70th Anniversary this December, Suburban Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, is looking for people who were born there to share their stories as part of the hospital’s 70th anniversary celebration.

Suburban Hospital opened its doors on December 13, 1943 as a 130-bed hospital built to accommodate the expanding World War II military population in rural Montgomery County, Maryland. Today, almost 70 years later, the hospital is distinguished by a cutting-edge stroke program; level II trauma center; centers of excellence in cardiac care, orthopedics and joint replacement surgery, neurosciences and oncology; state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment tools; and affiliations with world-class institutions, including the neighboring National Institutes of Health.

If you were born at Suburban Hospital between December 1943 and December 1944 and are willing to share your story, please contact the hospital via email at sh_info@jhmi.edu or by phone at 301-896-3939. Be sure to include your name, address, email, phone number and date of birth. Suburban Hospital plans to share the patient stories via social media outlets and other hospital publications.

To celebrate our 70th anniversary, we compiled photos dating back to our ground breaking in 1943. We hope you enjoy the flashback and thank our community for its support of Suburban Hospital.
