Catalyze Innovation that Advances Health

Where We Are

A Microcosm of Healthcare in America

"The beauty of MedStar Health is that we are located in an incredibly rich environment. It's a microcosm of healthcare in America. We've got primary care, secondary care, tertiary care. We've got a university and academic teaching hospitals. We've got small community hospitals. We have urban, suburban, rural. We serve wealthy, middle class, homeless and I'm proud to say, serve them all equally well. We've got a research institute. We have an innovation institute. We have a rehabilitation service. We run a visiting nurse association. We have a transport system. We've got private practice doctors and residents and employed physicians. So, there is just a great clinical laboratory to try out new things." - Mark Smith, MD
