Familiar Name, Larger Impact
MedStar Health Expands in Harford County

April 2016

InsidemedstarMedStar Health has served the Harford County region for over 20 years. Through those 20 years, the community and organization have formed a strong relationship, which is just one reason for the new state-of-the-art facility.

MedStar Health is a name Harford County residents are quite familiar with, thanks to a 20-plus-year presence in the county; however, the largest not-for-profit integrated health care delivery system in Maryland and the Washington, D.C. region is about to have an even bigger footprint in the area. Set to open April 12 in Bel Air, the new 100,000-square-foot, multi-specialty health center will make health care more convenient for patients.

MedStar Health has served the Harford County region for over 20 years. Through those 20 years, the community and organization have formed a strong relationship, which is just one reason for the new state-of-the-art facility.
When asked about the location of the new facility, President of Ambulatory Services and Physicians Bob Gilbert says, “MedStar Health has been a part of Harford County for years, and one in five residents already chooses MedStar for their health care needs. More than 2,000 MedStar associates live in Harford County. We are pleased to expand our services to meet the growing community’s needs and desire for quality, convenient services.” MedStar has been nationally recognized for clinical quality in heart, orthopedics, cancer and gastroenterology.

The development of the new facility raises the bar significantly, but it also displays the relationship with the community. In order to take services to the community in a proactive way, through the new facility, patients can stay in Harford County to see experts and get appropriate treatments because the experts will be coming to them. For example, if a patient needs any sort of surgical procedure, the only time they would need to travel to a MedStar hospital is to get the surgery itself. Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Les Matthews notes that all “other care can be done in their community. It’s a very nice seamless approach to health care.”

MedStar Health’s new facility is an overall upgrade for health care. Gilbert notes, “The convenience of having a comprehensive medical campus close by will be an obvious benefit to the individuals and families who live in Harford County. The ambulatory care center also makes it possible for us to coordinate care and focus on delivering the right care at the right time. For example, the ability to see a physician and have an MRI during the same visit will reduce the number of trips for care and time away from work. This translates to a high quality experience for our patients, while also being an efficient and cost-effective way to receive care. Our medical providers will benefit from having colleagues easily accessible for consults regarding treatment options.”

Practices such as the Woman’s Health Center, oncology, breast surgery, and orthopedics and sports medicine will all be relocating to the new facility. Additionally, an orthopedics and sports medicine practice will move from Boulton Street in Bel Air to the new medical campus.

“We appreciate the support from community leaders throughout this process, and we look forward to deepening our relationships with local schools, sports teams, Harford County Community College and civic organizations,” Gilbert says. I95
