Our mission at UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center is to provide the highest quality health care services to the communities we serve. Recognizing that the role of a hospital extends beyond the physical walls, UM BWMC strengthens communities and provides for better tomorrows through outreach.

By combining education, screenings and support groups, UM BWMC offers programs for every member of the family. Many programs and services we offer are a collaborative effort with community organizations, corporations and volunteers who have made a similar commitment to making health a priority. Together, we are making a difference in our community and improving health, one person at a time.
