At a Glance

MedStar Franklin Square provides comprehensive, technology-based surgical services, offering the latest, most innovative treatment for patients with a wide range of medical conditions. Other distinguished specialty service lines include: medicine, oncology, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, neonatal intensive care, behavioral health, neurosurgery, and ambulatory services.

Our $70 million surgical pavilion was completed during the final months of FY 2020 and houses 14 operating suites, pre/post-operative recovery areas, a state-of-the-art sterile processing center, and several associate support spaces, all designed to optimize surgical processes, quality of care, safety, and patient outcomes. This pavilion caps the $300 million campus modernization strategy that was developed over ten years ago.

The second half of the fiscal year saw the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the global healthcare crisis had a significant impact on care delivery nationally and locally, MedStar Health and specifically MedStar Franklin Square remained operational to continue to provide care to our patients. While some programs and elective procedures were paused and visitor restrictions implemented, MedStar Franklin Square was still able to deliver care, of the highest quality, in a safe environment to the members of our community who required immediate medical attention. At the same time, care was provided to those patients who demonstrated signs, symptoms, or were suspected of having COVID-19.
