  • Northwest Hospital is helping to shape the next generation of health care leaders and innovators through our magnet school partnership with Baltimore County Schools. Randallstown High magnet students were abuzz with excitement to be a part of the recent #NorthwestHospital tour. Students learned about artificial knees and ambulatory devices, observed sickle cells under the microscope and had interactive discussions with inpatient pharmacy. The organ dissection was hands down their favorite component! #community #baltimore
