Baltimore, MD hospitals

  1. Hey everyone! I go to school in South Carolina but want to work in Baltimore, MD. Does anyone know good hospitals to work at in the Baltimore area? I am interested in the NICU (I know not every hospital has one) and labor and delivery. Thanks! :roll

    If you like high risk deliveries and complicated babies, Mercy Hospital in downtown Baltimore may be a good choice.

    According to an NICU fact sheet from Mercy Medical Center's website they are one of 12 Level III NICU's in Maryland. There are 2 Level IV NICUs in Maryland and both are in Baltimore: Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland Medical Center.

    The Agape Center maintains a list of United States Hospitals you might helpful in your search, although it's not 100% complete.

    Hopkins is the best hospital in the world, ranked in the top 10 in 16 different specialties.

    However, Baltimore is a wasteland of a city. You cant live anywhere near hte hospital unless you want to get raped, mugged, shot.

    Not exactly true. There are wonderful neighborhoods located roughly 1/2 mile from the hospital. In addition the area near the hospital is very safe as they have guards posted at every corner. I never felt threatened in any way and I used to walk from the campus south to Fells Point. If you go in with preconceived notions of Baltimore you may very well end up hating it. If you are open minded, you may be able to find all the little gems throughout the city that make it like no other place. I am looking forward to possibly moving back there one day. Besides NYC, it is my favorite US city.

    While I loved working at Johns Hopkins, I have to strenously disagree. The area immediately around the hospital is quite dangerous.

    Around 2 to 3 times per week, we got warnings via the hospital email about various "individuals" to be on the lookout for, or criminal activities in the area. I worked in building right at the corner of the main campus, and one of my coworkers got held up in broad daylight, across the street, getting food from a fast food outlet. I was threatened by people at another fast food outlet waiting in line at the takeout window.

    While Baltimore is a nice place, and Hopkins was wonderful to work for, the City is not one of the more attractive places, and safety adjacent to Hopkins is an issue.

    There are MANY great places to live downtown in close proximity to Hopkins and Univ. of Maryland. (I know, I am sitting in one right now). Univ. of Maryland has brand new critical care towers with fantastic, new equipment. Lots of recent living space developement downtown has made the area a magnet for hospital employees to live. There are also incentives for employees to buy property close to work.

    It is amazing to me how much the city has cleaned up in the 3 years since I left there. Last year I vacationed back there and could not help noticing how much cleaner things had become. I must say I was mildly disappointed with how commercial some of my favorite neighborhoods had gotten. I would hate to see places like Mt Vernon loose their charm with more Subways and other corporate entities invading.
