Our twelve outstanding hospitals and numerous ambulatory centers not only offer you a choice of locations from urban to suburban and rural but also a choice of practice settings, including academic, teaching, and community. Since our inception as a private, not-for-profit corporation in 1984, we have pursued a clinical vision of providing measurably safe and quality care to the citizens of the State and region. Our goal is and always has been that every patient receives the same high standard of care, no matter where or when they make use of our services. Our focus on excellence in care quality and safety is evident in everything we do: from our application of evidence-based medicine aimed at reducing hospital-acquired infections, to continuous improvements in our operational design, facilities, and technologies. In fact, our efforts in quality improvement have allowed us to achieve mortality and unplanned readmission rates below benchmarks available from other Maryland hospitals. We're extremely proud of our successes to date. However, we know that achieving our clinical vision cannot happen without active physician leadership and support. To that end, we strive to recruit physicians committed to excellence in both clinical quality and service. And we give them the support they need to take their career and to take patient care to new levels together.
