Howard County General Hospital recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its 50,000-square-foot, two-story expansion project. According to an article in The Baltimore Sun, the projects are set to be open to the public this week.

Reporter Ana Faguy writes: “The improvements include an inpatient psychiatric unit that can serve 20 patients, a new emergency room entrance, and the addition of a 23-bed observation unit… The addition and renovations, which cost $48 million and were publicly and privately funded, began in late 2017. Howard County General Hospital, a member of John Hopkins Medicine, was originally opened in 1973 and is the only hospital in the county.”
