Union Memorial has 249 beds and emphasizes its orthopedics - which has some of the best doctors in the world - and cardiac care departments. It also has a general surgery department and emergency medicine services.

The hospital sees over 58,000 emergency room visits per year and brings in over $400 million in revenue. A few years ago the hospital opened a helipad for transport of patients which is obviously a big deal in getting serious injury patients treated quickly.

    ★★★★★
  • Miller and Zois is the best firm in the state of Maryland, and without their support, understanding, and just being there when I needed encouragement, I truly do not know how I would have succeeded without them.
