MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center is a 192 bed full-service acute care facility with approximately 53,00 emergency room visits and 12,000 admissions each year. Our hospital's commitment to advanced technology distinguishes it from community hospitals. Our hospital's Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory is the site of life-saving interventions for heart attack patients, elective angioplasties, and diagnostic procedures. MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center is also known for orthopedic surgery and has a strong partnership with MedStar Heart and Vascular Institute. In 2010, we expanded the Women and Newborns Center, and our enhanced obstetrics and gynecology program includes private rooms and the region's only Level II Special Care Nursery (NICU).

Investing in talented clinicians, education, and technology allows MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center to offer clinical services typically reserved for academic medical centers. In addition to being nationally recognized in Neurology & Neurosurgery, our hospital has a strong partnership with neurosurgeons from MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. MedStar Southern Maryland’s Stroke Center has a long history of award-winning performance in stroke care. In fact, we are ranked among the top 10 stroke programs in Maryland and was the first in the Southern Maryland region to be certified as a Primary Stroke Center by the state of Maryland. Using MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center's advanced technological capabilities, physicians perform complex medical and surgical procedures, including single-incision laparoscopic surgery, radial artery catheterization, and coronary angioplasty and stenting, to name but a few.

Among our other specialty services and facilities are a 24-hour emergency department and critical care unit, outpatient radiology, a surgical center, Laboratory for Sleep Disorders, inpatient and outpatient behavioral health programs, rehabilitative medicine, and cancer treatment services.
