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.
