Sinai Hospital is a Baltimore, Maryland hospital originally founded in 1866 as the Hebrew Hospital and Asylum. It is now a Jewish-sponsored teaching hospital that provides care for all people. It is notable as the birthplace of the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, or ICD, invented by the team of Dr. Michel Mirowski, Dr. Morton Mower, M. Stephen Heilman, and Alois Langer who are all in the National Inventors Hall of Fame for their achievement.

Since 1998, Sinai Hospital has been a part of the LifeBridge Health system,[1] which also runs Northwest Hospital in Randallstown, Levindale nursing home (which is across the street from Sinai), Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics, several medical office buildings in the Baltimore area, and a health and fitness club.

Sinai Hospital is located in Northwest Baltimore along Belvedere Avenue, near the intersection of Northern Parkway and Greenspring Avenue, and about a block away from Pimlico Race Course. The entrance to the emergency room known as ER-7 is accessible from Greenspring Avenue. The hospital itself is also surrounded by Cylburn and Lanier Avenues.

The hospital is very close to exit 10 off Interstate 83.

Several public bus lines operated by the Maryland Transit Administration serve the hospital, including Routes 1, 27, 44, and 91.

Northwest Hospital, formerly known as Northwest Hospital Center and Baltimore County General Hospital before that, is a hospital in Randallstown, Maryland (a suburb of Baltimore) owned and operated by LifeBridge. The hospital is full-service, with an emergency room and surgical facilities.

Northwest Hospital has 242 private inpatient beds and offers care for medical, surgical, behavioral health, rehabilitative and hospice patients. Its facilities have been designed around the Friesen concept, with nursing alcoves outside each patient room so nurses can spend more time with their patients. The Friesen-design hospital functions differently from the traditional hospital in that it creates an environment conducive to direct patient care through smaller 20-bed units; elimination of nursing stations; and placing supplies, medications and charts in close proximity to patients.
