MEDICAL CENTERS & FACILITIES
As we continue to grow, we simultaneously seek to come together as One UMMS, an organization that build on the strengths of its individual member organizations.
Functioning as One UMMS will allow us to create greater opportunities for our team members, provide more comprehensive care for our patients, and support more communities across Maryland. It will reaffirm our values and allow us to leverage the benefits of being part of a stronger, statewide system. In the end, we are not creating a new system; we are strengthening the one we have built. Together, we will honor our past and simultaneously look to our future, not just as a health care system, but as vital members of our communities.
This is a complex journey that will be phased in over many years. The details will not be dictated to you, but rather designed with and for you. With the help of representatives from different regions, departments and backgrounds throughout UMMS, we aim to create a more innovative and effective organization that leverages technological advancements and industry-wide best practices.
Our progress toward this initiative will be documented on the pages of this website.
The University of Maryland Medical System delivers approximately 25 percent of all hospital care in Maryland. We also serve a vital role in our state’s economy by employing 28,000 dedicated men and women who work tirelessly to help people every day. As such, it is vital that we lead the way into the future of health care with a clear vision.
Building upon the UMMS tradition of excellence in patient care and innovation, we aspire to be a national thought leader in the transformation of health care.
We will achieve this vision by focusing on four galvanizing themes:
Compassionate, High-Quality Care
We will be unrelenting in our dedication to delivering compassionate, high-quality, patient- and family-centered care.
We recognize the responsibility that comes with being an anchor institution in each of the communities we serve across Maryland. We are inherently entwined in the social fabric of our communities and will demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the health and well-being of Marylanders. This is not just our duty, but our life’s work.
Health Care Transformation
Leveraging the size and scale of our statewide health system, we will transform the way we deliver health care to bring more value to our patients and their communities.
As one of only two academic health care systems in Maryland, blazing new trails in medicine is inherent to our organization. We will invest in and partner with stakeholders who are committed to the highest ideals of innovation and discovery-based medicine and health education.
