Northwest Hospital, located in Randallstown, serves the health care needs of the northwest Baltimore metropolitan area, including Baltimore County, western Baltimore city, and Carroll and Howard Counties. It was established in 1962 as Liberty Court Rehabilitation Center, and in 1963 became Baltimore County General Hospital. In June 1993, it changed its name to Northwest Hospital.
Northwest Hospital exists to improve the well-being of the community by nurturing relationships between the hospital, medical staff and our patients.
Northwest Hospital, a not-for-profit organization, is committed to creating and maintaining an environment where exceptional quality care and service is achieved and recognized by our patients and their families, members of the medical and allied health staffs, employees, volunteers and the communities we serve. Care and service are provided without regard to age, sex, race, religion, disability or financial status.
Northwest Hospital will be a recognized leader in customer care and clinical quality in the services we choose to offer by exceeding expectations of patients, physicians, employees and the community.
The Friesen Concept
In keeping with Northwest Hospital's philosophy of patient-centered care, its facilities have been designed around the Friesen concept, with nursing alcoves outside each patient room so nurses can spend more time with their patients. The Friesen-design hospital functions differently from the traditional hospital in that it creates an environment conducive to direct patient care through smaller 20-bed units; private patient rooms; elimination of nursing stations; and placing supplies, medications and charts in close proximity to patients.
Northwest is an all-private room hospital. The following numbers reflect actual staffed beds.
