About Northwest Hospital

It was established in 1962 as Liberty Court Rehabilitation Center, and in 1963 became Baltimore County General Hospital. In June of 1993, it changed its name to Northwest Hospital.

Mission

Northwest Hospital exists to improve the well-being of the community by nurturing relationships between the hospital, medical staff and our patients.


Philosophy

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.


Vision

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-designed 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 the placement of supplies, medications and charts in close proximity to patients.

Northwest is an all-private room hospital that has 254 beds.

Northwest Price List

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires all hospitals make available pricing information related to hospitals services through its internet website. The file posted here, commonly referred to as the “chargemaster”, reflect charges for items and services provided by Northwest Hospital. In Maryland, the rates charged by hospitals are established and regulated by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC), a state regulatory agency. The hospital charges do not include charges for physician services, which are separate from the hospital bill.

Charges on individual hospital bills may be different from those posted here, as the HSCRC allows for a defined level of fluctuation to occur throughout the course of a year. Northwest Hospital will post its chargemaster two times a year in coordination with the approval of hospital rates by the Maryland HSCRC.
