Increases realized in total number of patients, outpatient visits and donor growth

BALTIMORE, MD (Oct. 14) – Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH) released its FY16 Annual Report today.  The theme “The Power of Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital” sets the tone for a book filled with powerful messages of support and partnership.  Opened in 1922 as “Happy Hills Convalescent Home,” MWPH has become a hospital uniquely equipped to care for infants, children, teens and young adults living with medically complex illnesses.  Over the years significant milestones have included building the hospital (1988); expanding operations to Prince George’s County (1996); opening the Rosenberg Outpatient Center (2000); and an unprecedented partnership with the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine (2006), which just celebrated its 10-year anniversary.

“This year we are celebrating the power of our community in making each and every success possible,” said Sheldon Stein, President and CEO of the hospital.  “Fiscal year 16 will be defined as a year where the hospital continued to play an important role in the community – offering greater convenience, flexibility and coordinated health to patients and their families.”   

The Annual Report highlights growth in number of patients (from 8,074 in FY15 to 8,635 in FY16) and outpatient visits (from 43,825 in FY15 to 47,891 in FY16).  Support also grew in terms of number of donors (from 584 in FY 15 to 756 in FY16) and increases in annual giving (from $715,676 in FY15 to $907,901 in FY16).  

The stories within the report highlight the first-ever Feeding Conference hosted by MWPH, a terminally-ill teen’s work with our psychology department, Ravens’ player Brandon Williams’ and his wife Alyssa Karel’s inspiration to volunteer, the long-time support of the Mt. Washington Tavern, the 10-year anniversary of the partnership with the University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine, and many other successes over the year.
