120th Anniversary

Celebrating 120 years of caring for the community.

Since Frederick Health opened its doors in 1902, the vision of our founder, Emma Smith, continues and has evolved into our mission to positively impact the well-being of every individual in our community.

Frederick Health has grown from a single, small hospital with just over a dozen beds to a network of over 4,500 team members across 24 locations. We have become an established, trusted presence that has transformed healthcare throughout Frederick County and serves individuals and communities of every kind. We remain committed to providing accessible healthcare to the people who rely on us.

Frederick Health’s growth is possible because of the hard work of all our 4,500 team members. No matter their role, they are a valued part of Frederick Health and we are stronger together. Their dedication has allowed us to provide award-winning care to you - our neighbors, friends, family, and community.

For 120 years, we’ve been caring for the Frederick Community — whether you live, work, or play here. Our community is changing, and we will continue to adapt. Thank you for being a part of our history, our growth, and our future.
