Meet MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center

Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting MedStar's newest member of the system, MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center. I went to talk about the Research Institute and what it offers investigators and staff interested in research throughout the system. But, it also gave me the opportunity to learn more about our tenth hospital.

MedStar Health welcomed MedStar Southern Maryland in December 2012. Here are a few fun facts:

  • It's a 262-bed acute care medical center with about 65,000 Emergency Department visits and close to 19,000 inpatient admissions annually.
  • Located in Clinton, MD, MedStar Southern Maryland has an accredited Chest Pain Center and opened the first Primary Stroke Center in Prince George’s County. To this day, it is one of the largest stroke centers in Maryland. 
  • Community outreach is an integral part. MedStar Southern Maryland provides health screenings, organizes blood drives and developed the Mallwalkers program, which gets the community out to walk each day at two mall locations.
