Patient Information
Because things can get stressful when you first arrive as a patient, and become confusing even later when you need a quick answer to a question, we hope that this page will serve as a practical source of information about your hospital visit or stay. Finally, your Patient Representative (301-496-2626) is someone you can always call with problems or concerns.
