The programs provide a wide variety of ambulatory as well as inpatient experiences for doctors in a collegial atmosphere on the Chesapeake Bay.

A Regional Presence
For the past century, MedStar Harbor Hospital has grown alongside the community we serve, which includes Baltimore City, and Anne Arundel and Howard Counties. First established in 1901 as the South Baltimore Eye, Ear and Throat Clinic, we continue to offer the personal touch of a community hospital with the services of a high technology medical center. In 1996, we became part of Helix Health, the region's most innovative health care network.
Helix merged with Medlantic Healthcare Group in 1998 and in 1999 was renamed MedStar Health. MedStar Health is among the top 20 not-for-profit health systems in the country. It consists of community-based hospitals and a wide range of health care services, facilities and primary care centers throughout the Baltimore-Washington area.
This network affiliation brings us solid financial backing that allows us to remain at the forefront of health care, adding new equipment, updating facilities and promoting high tech, high touch care.
MedStar Harbor Hospital is the only seven-time winner of the Excellence Award for Quality for Hospitals in Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, DC. We are designated as a stroke center by MIEMSS and certified as a stroke center by The Joint Commission. MedStar Harbor Hospital is actively involved in patient safety and quality improvement initiatives and research at the regional and national levels.
