Dr. Dawood didn’t judge me or try to persuade me otherwise. He sympathized with me and made sure that my mind would be right for surgery. My surgery was a success! - Brandi
You Can Trust Us to Mend Your Broken Heart
The American Heart Association's Mission: Lifeline® program awarded Luminis Health for outstanding performance and care when treating heart attack patients. We are one of only 25% of hospitals in the nation qualified to perform emergency cardiac catheterization.
The Maryland Institute of Emergency Medicine Services Systems designated Luminis Health a Certified Intervention Center for emergency heart attack care. This means we're the area's preferred hospital for heart attack care. If you call 911 for a heart attack, we provide life-saving angioplasty within 90 minutes. We exceed Maryland state standards for this care.
We offer a dedicated inpatient unit for people with heart conditions, as well as cardiac catheterization labs, a cardiovascular critical care unit and a cardiac rehabilitation center.
With advanced imaging, we can detect heart problems early and often treat them with minimally invasive procedures. That means small incisions, less pain and a quicker recovery for you.
We're dedicated to reducing the heart disease rate in the communities we serve. We offer more screenings and prevention programs in more locations than ever before.

- Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for blocked arteries.
- Heart valve repair or replacement.
- Complex aortic surgeries and aortic aneurysm repair.
- Surgeries to correct arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat).
