Suburban Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, has been an essential part of our
local community for 75 years. As the county’s only designated trauma center and a primary
stroke center, Suburban Hospital serves more than 70,000 patients annually and provides
highly specialized, world-class care to residents throughout Montgomery County and the
greater Washington region.
Suburban Hospital first opened its doors on Dec. 13, 1943, as a 130-bed hospital to
accommodate the growing World War II-era population in Bethesda. Today, to meet current
demands and address the growing healthcare needs of the community, Suburban Hospital is
building for the future with a $275 million campus transformation, including a 300,000 square
foot clinical addition scheduled to open in 2020.
The Suburban Hospital campus will be in the same convenient location on Old Georgetown
Road, just north of downtown Bethesda and directly across from the National Institutes of
Health, with which the hospital has an important medical partnership. The new building will be
adjacent to the current building and connected by a bright and airy breezeway. The hospital’s
plans comprise a number of enhanced and expanded services to better serve patients and their
families, including high-tech operating rooms with hybrid and robotic technologies and state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization labs.
The clinical addition will offer all private medical and surgical patient rooms, onsite office
access to medical specialists, a patient and family resource center, the Marriott Education and
Conference Center and a meditation space. Learn more about Suburban Hospital’s campus
