The new Holy Cross Germantown Hospital brings healthcare, and healthcare training, closer to home for the Germantown, Md., community.
The first new hospital built in Maryland's Montgomery County in 35 years, Holy Cross Germantown is also the first hospital constructed on a community college campus. This partnership between Montgomery College and the Trinity Health/Holy Cross system will expand training opportunities for healthcare workers while bringing care to residents who had previously traveled 20 miles to the flagship Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Md.
The 237,000-square-foot, 93-bed general acute care facility is separated into three components: a patient care tower with diagnostic and treatment facilities, a logistics/support wing, and a central utility plant. Each component has discrete structural, mechanical, and utility systems designed for its unique functional requirements, generating significant cost savings.
