MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center is a 262 bed full-service acute care and 24-bed sub-acute care facility with approximately 65,000 emergency room visits and approximately 19,000 admissions each year.
Our hospital’s commitment to advanced technology distinguishes it from community hospitals. Our Heart and Vascular Center’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 the Center for Joint Replacement. 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 2 special care nursery.
Investing in talented clinicians, education, and technology allows MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center to offer clinical services typically reserved for academic medical centers. We have an accredited Chest Pain Center and opened the first Primary Stroke Center in Prince George’s County. 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, a sleep disorders lab, inpatient and outpatient behavioral health programs, an asthma and allergy center, rehabilitative medicine, and cancer treatment services.
