Sherwood Surgical Center at GBMC opened in 1979 as Maryland's first ambulatory surgical center, named after Virginia Sherwood a founding member of GBMC. It is the primary location for outpatient surgeries and procedures. The Center houses nine operating rooms and has the capability of performing a wide variety of outpatient and inpatient procedures.

Additionally, Sherwood provides surgical interventions for newborns from the Newborn Nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, as well as pediatric emergencies which present through the Emergency Department.
