MedStar Merger

A new name. A new era in healthcare. 

Medstar Southern Maryland Hospital HelicopterBeginning on December 10, 2012, the hospital you trust for excellence in specialty medical and surgical care in Southern Maryland has a new name: MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center.

We have joined forces with MedStar Health, the leading provider of healthcare services in Maryland and Washington, DC. As a member of MedStar, our hospital joins a health system with ten hospitals, 27,000 employees, and an unrivaled reputation for clinical excellence.

But there is more to this change than a new name.

By merging with MedStar Health, our hospital will grow to meet the needs of Southern Maryland's residents, with more services, more doctors, and an expanded, renovated facility that will serve as a model for regional medical centers.

More Services

Over the next five years, MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center will establish a full-service cancer center, where patients can count on coordinated care to guide them through the diagnostic process, treatment regimen (including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery), and into a successful recovery, all without traveling outside of Southern Maryland. The hospital also plans to expand its neuroscience services and further develop its already robust cardiology program with a cardiac electrophysiology laboratory for advanced treatment of arrhythmias.

More services available in Southern Maryland means it will be easier to get the care you need without leaving your community. Should a higher level of care become necessary, MedStar Health System includes the region's top two tertiary care centers, MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

New Facilities

Over the next few years, you will notice big changes at MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center. New facilities will include a new medical pavilion, expanded and renovated emergency and critical care departments, and even a new lobby and parking structure. Outfitted with the latest technology and patient-centered design, these new additions will mean better care for you, whether you are coming in for a routine checkup, having a test, or treating a problem.

Thirty-five years ago, Southern Maryland Hospital opened its doors in pursuit of a vision - to provide excellent specialty medical care to the residents of Prince George's County and the Southern Maryland Penninsula. For over three decades, we have remained true to that vision and on serving our community by providing the finest medical and surgical care. As we embark on our new partnership with MedStar Health, we are proud to take a leap forward in our evolution and become the regional medical center our founder had imagined all those years ago.

A new era begins today at Medstar Southern Maryland Hospital Center.
