UM Laurel Regional Hospital new building computer diagram

UM Laurel Regional Hospital is now UM Laurel Medical Center

As you may have heard, an exciting transformation is taking place to better support the health of this community. We are now University of Maryland Laurel Medical Center (UM LMC). This name change reflects a transition from traditional inpatient care to more comprehensive outpatient care.

We will continue to provide comprehensive, full-service emergency care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  We will also continue to offer short-stay overnight care on an Observation Unit, when appropriate, as well as outpatient surgery, and enhanced outpatient behavioral health programs.

While in our care, patients will continue to receive our full care and attention for any range of medical needs. If the care you or your loved one needs is beyond what can be provided at UM LMC, we will make necessary arrangements to ensure you receive the care you need in the right place at the right time, which may include a potential transfer to another highly qualified facility.
