Investing in high-quality patient care

Our distinguished specialty service lines include medicine, oncology, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, orthopaedics, neonatal intensive care, behavioral health, neurology, neurosurgery, and ambulatory services.

MedStar Franklin Square treated the most number of COVID patients in Baltimore County. Many patients throughout the MedStar Health system were transferred to MedStar Franklin Square due to our reputation and ability to care for patients safely throughout the pandemic. By the end of Fiscal Year 2022, MedStar Franklin Square cared for over 8,100 COVID-positive patients and discharged over 4,000 COVID-positive patients. Throughout this time, MedStar Health continued to invest significantly in MedStar Franklin Square’s services and campus infrastructure to improve the services we provide to our community. As a tertiary center in northeast Baltimore, we continue recruiting neurology, oncology, and other integrated services experts. We recently opened our elective cardiac catheterization program (CPORT-E) and became certified as a Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Center. MedStar Franklin Square also opened our professional, state-of-the-art kitchen to cook and serve a variety of nutritional, delicious menu items—all in the hopes of improving the patient experience.
