Howard County General Hospital has been serving our community for more than 30 years. Our mission, "To Care, to Heal, to Serve" is carried through in all that we do.

When the Columbia Hospital and Clinics Foundation was founded in 1973, it was conceived as simply a 59-bed, short-stay facility for members of the Columbia Medical Plan. However, in response to the immediate demand for services and rapid rate of growth in the County, the hospital was incorporated the following year as Howard County General Hospital, an independent not-for-profit hospital with a mission to provide high-quality, comprehensive care and, in the process, improve the health of its community. In 1998, the hospital entered into a strategic partnership with Johns Hopkins Medicine, thereby augmenting the strong, community-focused, integrated delivery system already in place with the benefits of a formal connection with a world-renowned academic medical center. The alliance with Hopkins has positioned HCGH to pursue new initiatives that will provide improved services, facilities, and medical technology to the residents of Howard County.

Today, Howard County General Hospital: A Member of Johns Hopkins Medicine is a 208-bed comprehensive, acute-care medical center specializing in women`s and children`s services, surgery, cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, gerontology, psychiatry, emergency services, and community health education. Last year, the hospital had nearly 14,000 admissions; performed more than 13,000 surgical procedures; delivered over 2,900 babies; and treated more than 75,000 patients in the Emergency Department.

I went to the ER on Friday night due to a bad fall during a tennis match and potentially broke and displaced my wrist. I had to wait for more than two hours just to get the X-rays and another two hours to be seen by a physician assistant, PA. No doctor ever showed up to talk to me even I asked many times. The PA confirmed that I have distal radius fracture but never mentioned that it is also displaced. He believes in his judgement that the distal radius is in place and no surgery is needed. They referred me an Orthopedist who is not available till Thu next week (6 days after the injury). I finally found two Orthopedists, One from Chesapeake Hand and one from John Hopkins, that are able to see me sooner. Both doctors confirmed that I have distal radius fracture and displacement and requires surgery. I went to Howard County General Hospital with a faith that there would be good doctor to see and treat me. I am very disappointed that no doctor was available to see me and give me the correct diagnosis and treatment by putting my displaced distal radius in place when the injury was still fresh. Perhaps if they have done the appropriate treatment, I may not need a surgery. I have no faith with this hospital from this incident. I will not return and recommend for anyone.

I went there with severe abdominal pain and swelling. They made we wait in the waiting room for 3 hours without seeing any doctor or having any scans done. I saw people that came in after me get called into a room before me. I finally just left so I could go someplace else where I could see a doctor. They did triage me pretty fast, so props to the triage nurses. But please do not go here if you need immediate medical attention, you won't get it.
