MWPH is proud to have such a large group of clinical partners recognized as top doctors.


"Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital is able to provide expert care because of the excellent clinicians on our team, which is partly due to our unique affiliation with University of Maryland Medical System and Johns Hopkins Medicine," said Dr. Richard Katz, Chief Medical Officer. "As we head into the hospital’s Centennial year, we salute all of our doctors, past and present, as ‘Top Docs’.”
