Known as Medical Pavilion, 10710 Charter Drive is situated on the Howard County General Hospital campus, a Johns Hopkins Medicine facility, and adjacent to Howard Community College.

Many practices are adding telemedicine capability and have replaced paper file systems with electronic health record software systems to better treat patients.
