The University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) delivers a special blend of clinical skill, innovation and caring in each area we serve.

We share the research and specialized care for which our teaching hospital is known with our member hospitals, health centers, doctors and care teams, all of which are focused on the people we serve.

Our 12 hospitals in Maryland provide care to Maryland residents, the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.

Our top priority is serving the health of people throughout the state. Each of our hospitals has worked for years with many local groups and individuals to address their area's most urgent health needs. UMMS's philosophy is simple: "Healthy communities are empowered communities."
