Two expanding downcounty hospitals are having very different experiences trying to cooperate with adjacent neighborhoods.

Officials at the Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring and nearby residents describe a collaborative design process that began almost two years ago and incorporated key residential suggestions. But for several years, Suburban Hospital in Bethesda and the adjacent Huntington Terrace Citizens Association have disagreed on a proposed expansion that will demolish 23 nearby hospital-owned homes and close one block of Lincoln Street, a residential thoroughfare.
