In providing the best possible care for children of all ages, the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital (UMCH) takes the slogan “Children Are Our Future” very seriously. Children have specific physiological and emotional needs that differ from adults. That’s why everything that we do at UMCH is kid-focused!
In addition to our clinical services, UMCH is a national leader in children’s health care research. Our highly respected and well-funded research activities allow us to search for cures to childhood illnesses.
We have a vast range of specialty care (over 20!).
Our health care providers are fellowship-trained, meaning they spent extra time training to be a pediatric specialist.
We have a 52-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) as well as a 19-bed pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).
We have a dedicated pediatric emergency room where experts care just for kids.
We have many outpatient locations across Maryland.
We have a team of Child Life Specialists who devote their days to making kids feel like kids!
Every member of the family is impacted when a child is sick which is why we emphasize family-centered care.

In 1922, a medical social worker named Hortense Kahn Eliasberg sought to open a home where children could safely recover from illness and surgery.
Thanks to her efforts, the Happy Hills Convalescent Home for Children opened later that year in Northwest Baltimore. It has since evolved into the Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital, a leader in local pediatric care, and is proudly affiliated with the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Today, those who work at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital remain committed to the mission Hortense Kahn Eliasberg established so many years ago — improving the health and well-being of all children who are ill, injured or in need of help.

Our mission priority is reconstructive surgery for trauma and cancer patients. Most reconstructive procedures are TRICARE covered benefits and patients are entitled to appointments within 30 days.
Cosmetic surgery, on the other hand, is not a TRICARE covered benefit and will only be performed as resources allow. Examples of cosmetic surgery include liposuction, breast augmentation, breast lifting, face lifting, abdominoplasty, and blepharoplasty. If these procedures are offered, patients must pay the federally mandated surgical fees before surgery. This cosmetic surgery billing policy applies to all patients, active duty or otherwise. Also, initial cosmetic surgery appointments often require patients to wait beyond the usual 30 day window.
If you are interested in cosmetic surgery, your doctor may submit a consult request. The outcome of that request will be determined largely on the department’s space availability.
Thank you for understanding our need to prioritize patient care.
