The facility was designed and built to revolutionize surgical care, with features and functionalities that support what medicine looks like today, as well as how it will progress into the future.


Key features in our clinical space include:

  • 14 spacious surgical suites, packed with the latest industry tools and technologies to optimize patient care, safety, and quality

  • 1 “hybrid” operating room, featuring advanced imaging technology that allows an interventional cardiologist, radiologist, and vascular surgeon to collaborate and multi-task, all at one time, during a surgical case. Important to note – we are the only hospital in the State of Maryland, and among only a few in the U.S., to house this type of specialty surgical suite

  • Dedicated space for transplant and perfusion cases (to be introduced in the future)

  • State-of-the-art sterilization tools and processes

  • Robust video systems, integrated in the operative suites to facilitate virtual training opportunities for the hospital’s surgical residency program

  • Private consultation rooms

  • A 600-foot concourse, connecting the Surgical Pavilion to the existing patient tower to streamline transport as patients are moved to the intensive care unit (ICU), their inpatient rooms, and other areas of the hospital, as needed

Key features in our common areas include:

  • Spacious waiting room, featuring a tranquil waterfall feature and many windows to allow natural light to stream in. Together, these design elements create an environment for families and other visitors that is warm, calm, soothing, and comfortable

  • Dedicated parking area (utilize Entrance #5 from Franklin Square Drive)

  • Patient pick-up and drop-off locations in close proximity to the facility entrance

  • Vending stations

  • Electronic device charging stations

  • Access to the 600-foot concourse leading to the existing patient tower, for those who wish to utilize the hospital cafeteria, coffee shop, gift shop, chapel, and other amenities
