About the hospital

Holy Cross Health is a Catholic, not-for-profit health system that serves more than 240,000 patient visits each year with the promise to make health, and the best possible quality of life, more achievable. Holy Cross Health’s high-quality care is accessible to community members in Maryland’s Montgomery and Prince George’s counties through 2 hospitals, 10 primary and specialized care centers, home care and hospice services, and a wide range of community health programs.

Founded in 1963, Holy Cross Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Maryland, and today is a 395-bed teaching hospital caring for more than 36,000 inpatients each year. The hospital offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient services, with specialized expertise in women and infant services, senior services, surgery, medicine, neuroscience, and cancer. Specialists at the hospital perform more inpatient gynecologic and gynecologic oncology surgeries, deliver more babies, and care for more newborns with complex medical issues than any other hospital in Maryland. The hospital addresses the unique needs of seniors through the nation’s first and the region’s only Seniors Emergency Center—which has become a national model.
