Investing in high-quality patient care

Over the past several years, our hospital has made significant investments in technology and services so we can enhance patient care, safety, and comfort. Enhancements include:

  • A state-of-the art $80-million, 82,000-square-foot surgical pavilion—Opened in 2020, it houses 14 ultra-modern operating suites, pre- and post-operative recovery areas, and associate support spaces, all designed to optimize surgical processes, quality of care, safety, and patient outcomes.
  • A seven-story Patient Care Tower—This addition to our campus offers a facility that is as advanced as the high-quality care found inside, with many patient-centered touches to create a safe, comfortable, healing environment.
  • Joining forces with MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute—Our cancer programs at MedStar Franklin Square and MedStar Health Bel Air officially became part of MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute, supporting MedStar Health's multidisciplinary model of care.
  • Launching our Reconstructive Surgery Center—Our Reconstructive Surgery Center was opened for patients undergoing gender affirmation, cosmetic and reconstructive, and extensive cancer-removing surgeries.
  • A new Inpatient Oncology Unit—This new unit provides spacious facilities for patients and families undergoing treatment for cancer.
