Dr Murphy prepares for his 1000 surgical procedure

I remember when we opened the hospital in 2014. We had a vision of making it the most patient friendly and efficient hospital in Maryland. The hospital has since performed over 15,000 surgical procedures, delivered thousands of babies, and seen more than one million visits to the Emergency room.

Over the course of performing 1000 of those procedures, I have observed first hand the development of one of the strongest teams in healthcare in the state. This was truly a team effort, and we are all prepared for the next 1000!!!
