The Promise of Medicine

Every year, tens of thousands of people come to Suburban Hospital for medical treatment. In doing so, they are asking us to deliver on a promise to provide the most innovative, collaborative and compassionate care available toward the goal of restoring health and saving lives.

Suburban Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, is well positioned to deliver on the promise of medicine. In this issue you will read about how advanced technologies and groundbreaking procedures, a growing portfolio of research and clinical trials, and expanded access to primary and specialty-care physicians combine to ensure unsurpassed outcomes for our patients.

Orthopaedic surgeon Sridhar Durbhakula uses new technologies to provide a minimally invasive approach to hip replacement that speeds recovery.

Other patients benefit from the promise of new discoveries by participating in Suburban’s extensive network of research studies, enabled through our close association with our neighbor across the street, the National Institutes of Health.

And finally, the expansion of Johns Hopkins Community Physicians throughout Montgomery County and Northwest, DC ensures that our patients can always find a doctor willing to care for them and their loved ones.

I hope our strong commitment to you provides you with peace of mind, and that you enjoy this holiday season with peace in your heart.
