Founded in 1773, the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center is one of five member institutions in the Johns Hopkins Health System.
Johns Hopkins Bayview has a long, distinguished history of service and medical excellence. It is one of the oldest, continuous health care institutions on the East Coast. From its inception as an almshouse, it evolved as an asylum and, eventually, a municipal hospital. In 1984, the city of Baltimore transferred ownership of the hospital to The Johns Hopkins Hospital and The Johns Hopkins University.
The Medical Center offers a wide range of services, including a trauma center and neonatal intensive care unit that are part of the statewide system, and a nationally renowned geriatrics center. Johns Hopkins Bayview is also home to the Johns Hopkins Burn Center, the only burn trauma and surgical facility in the region. Located in southeast Baltimore, the Medical Center is easily accessible from I-95 and I-895.
As a community teaching hospital, most of the physicians at Johns Hopkins Bayview are full-time faculty at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and offer their expertise through numerous teaching programs, including the residency program in internal medicine. The Medical Center provides a supportive environment that allows house staff the opportunity to become leaders in primary care general internal medicine, geriatric medicine and other medical subspecialties. Students from The Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing also come to the Medical Center for hospital-based instruction in acute and long-term care.
Our 130-acre campus provides state-of-the-art facilities, expert patient care and continues to offer quality service to the community.
