University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute is a rehabilitation hospital located along the border of Baltimore City and Woodlawn, Baltimore County in Maryland. It lies on and is incorporated into the historic hospital building and grounds of the former James Lawrence Kernan Hospital. The hospital is currently a part of the University of Maryland Medical System
The James Lawrence Kernan Hospital was built between 1860 and 1867 as Radnor Park, a two-story, five-bay, Victorian mansion. In the first several decades of the 20th century, alterations were carried out to the original house which made the house over into a combination of the Greek and Colonial Revival styles. The 1920s hospital structures were built in a style that blends well with the mansion and its grounds. James Lawrence Kernan (1838–1912) was a theater manager and philanthropist of the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras in Baltimore.
