Healthcare Campus – Medstar

MedStar Health is a 5.6 billion dollar, not for profit, regional health care system based in Columbia MD and one of the largest employers in the region. They are the largest health care provider in Maryland and the Washington DC region with 10 hospitals and related urgent care and physical therapy practice locations.

The MedStar Health brand came into existence 1998 with the merger of Helix health and Medlantic.

A new branding system and logo was created for the new entity and Apple Signs, Inc. was chosen to provide exterior identity and wayfinding signage updates for all 10 campuses and associated practices.
