Maryland Oncology’s Columbia location is located in the Medical Pavilion directly across from Howard County General Hospital. MOH was founded in 1986 and was the first practice to provide medical oncology and hematology care to residents in the growing Howard County area of Maryland. MOH’s Howard County location has now grown to include 5 full time oncologists.
