Holy Cross Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Maryland. Founded in 1963 by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Cross, today Holy Cross Hospital is a 450-bed, not-for-profit, faith-based and mission-driven teaching hospital.
Located in Silver Spring, Maryland, just north of Washington, D.C., and near the Capital Beltway and Metro, the hospital primarily serves residents of the state’s two largest jurisdictions, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.
Holy Cross Hospital offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient primary and specialty health care services, with specialized expertise in surgery, neuroscience, cancer, women and infants’ services, and senior care.
Specialists at the hospital perform more inpatient gynecologic surgeries, deliver more babies and care for more critically ill newborns than any other hospital in Maryland. The hospital also dedicates more funding to community benefit than any other in Montgomery County.
More than 1,200 physicians are affiliated with Holy Cross Hospital, making its medical staff one of the largest in the state. More than 3,200 people work at Holy Cross Hospital, including 1,000 nurses, and the hospital is the only one in Maryland to receive the Workplace Excellence Award from the Maryland Work-Life Alliance every year since 1999.
Holy Cross Hospital is a member of Trinity Health of Novi, Michigan, one of the largest health systems in the country, as well as the American Hospital Association, the Maryland Hospital Association, the Catholic Health Association and the Association of American Medical College’s Council of Teaching Hospitals.
