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. 

Community Commitment

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. 

Discovery-Based Medicine

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.
