Traditions of Growth — Green Spring Station and Johns Hopkins Medicine

The Johns Hopkins Health Care & Surgery Center, which opened 25 years ago at Green Spring Station, is growing once again in a Baltimore County site that has been a thriving business hub for centuries.

In the mid-1800s, the Lutherville location was home to several blacksmith and wheelwright shops, and included a gatehouse that collected tolls from farmers taking their produce and wares to and from Baltimore City. It was also home to members of the Cockey family, for whom the Cockeysville area is named.

During the Great Depression, Ted and Roy Peddy purchased a two-story restaurant and named it the Green Spring Inn. The Peddy brothers, along with Ted’s son Tom, continued to develop Green Spring Station into a community destination with many popular local businesses and restaurants. In 1994, the Johns Hopkins Health Care & Surgery Center became a major tenant.

Pavilion I of the Johns Hopkins Health Care & Surgery Center was built on land that was once the original Cockey family homestead. Within two years of Pavilion I opening, Johns Hopkins leased the Falls and Joppa Concourse and added Pavilion II, another 75,000-square-foot building.

Demand for outpatient care in the area has continued to increase. Working with the Peddys, Johns Hopkins received approval in 2016 for Pavilion III from Baltimore County, Green Spring Station developers and adjacent community associations.

Located on the site of the old Green Spring Racquet Club, Pavilion III has been under construction for the past two years and is scheduled to open this year, adding more comprehensive medical services with larger medical facilities and a new outpatient surgery center equipped to accommodate a range of surgical procedures.
