The Johns Hopkins Hospital Metro Subway Station is the final of 14 stops along the Baltimore Metro Subway line. It is identified as "Johns Hopkins Hospital" as opposed to simply "Johns Hopkins" to distinguish the location from the many other locations in Baltimore associated with Johns Hopkins University, though the hospital is currently the only such location with a rail station.

The station is one of two stops in the third phase of the Baltimore Metro, having opened in 1995. The Johns Hopkins Hospital Metro Subway Station has two street-level entrances, and an entrance to the hospital that bypasses the street.

Interior shots of the 1997 Homicide: Life on the Street episode titled "Subway" were filmed here (exteriors were shot at the Shot Tower stop). The station signs were replaced with signs for a fictional "Inner Harbor" stop.
