Kernan hospital changing name

Kernan Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation Hospital is changing its name to better reflect its ties to the University of Maryland Medical System.

The hospital will be known as the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute effective this month. The new name is also meant to reflect its focus on innovation and research.

The 144-bed hospital is the largest inpatient rehabilitation hospital and provider of rehabilitation services in the state. Patients come to the hospital after recovering from strokes, traumatic injury and other illnesses. The hospital also offers services for amputation, rheumatology, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and other neuro-degenerative disorders.
