BALTIMORE — Nearly 1000 patients have been tested positive for coronavirus at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center since the pandemic began.

On Friday, the hospital discharged their 500th patient that was hospitalized!

Estela Patricio’s husband works in a Patient First lab and had tested positive. She believes she may have contracted the virus from him.

"Today was really a great day for us because during this COVID pandemic, we've had well over 900 patients, and some have come in as outpatients, and gone home, and are recovering well. But for our inpatients, this was our 500th COVID discharge that went home well, and we're just so proud and so happy for our patients," said Debbie Kisner, RN Chief Nursing Officer at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center.
