Biocontainment Unit Virtual Tour
The new, state-of-the-art Biocontainment Unit at The Johns Hopkins Hospital is prepared to safely care for adult and pediatric patients with highly infectious diseases, without compromising the health and safety of other patients, families and care teams. The 7,900-square-foot unit includes three patient rooms, an on-site laboratory, capability to perform routine surgical procedures as well as showers and clean-in/clean-out anterooms for health care providers. The unit’s ventilation system is separate from the rest of the hospital and two pass-through autoclaves allow for the safe and effective handling of highly infectious medical waste.
