Over the past several years, MedStar Franklin Square has made significant investments in technology, including the da Vinci® robotic surgical system and CyberKnife®. 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. Our Reconstructive Surgery Center was also launched for patients who have undergone extensive cancer-removing surgeries. We also opened a new Inpatient Oncology Unit providing beautiful, spacious facilities for its patients and families. In December 2018, MedStar Franklin Square broke ground on a new $70 million surgical pavilion (scheduled to open in 2020), which will house 14 operating suites, pre/post-operative recovery areas, and associate support spaces, all designed to optimize surgical processes, quality of care, safety, and patient outcomes.
