COLUMBIA, Md.—As the hospital and its emergency room undergo renovation, Howard County General Hospital will temporarily move the emergency entrance to the hospital’s main entrance starting Nov. 15. ER patients and visitors should enter the campus using the Cedar Lane entrance and park in designated lots adjacent to the hospital’s main entrance. Ambulances and helicopters will still use their existing entrance.

The temporary change is part of Howard County General Hospital’s campus construction project building a two-story addition to the hospital and renovating existing space. The addition and renovation will meet growing community needs for emergency care, general medical and surgical care and behavioral health services.
