Green Spring Station Timeline

Green Spring Station and Johns Hopkins Medicine: A History of Community and Health Care

When Johns Hopkins opened its first offices for medical consultation and diagnosis at Green Spring Station in 1994, the institution created a setting where clinical medicine could grow and thrive. The new location also provided easy access to superior medical care in a suburban setting.

Coinciding with the 25th anniversary in 2019, the Johns Hopkins Health Care & Surgery Center is expanding to include a sixth building. Surrounded by upscale shops, fine restaurants and oases of natural beauty, Green Spring Station continues to breathe new life into patient care, with more than 40 specialties represented.

“Green Spring Station is a simple concept — for physicians to practice together in a collegial, academic atmosphere. And if my patients’ responses are any indicator, it’s going to be wildly successful.” — Internist Dana Frank, M.D.
