BALTIMORE – More than 300 individual physicians in 135 specialties and sub-specialties who provide care across University of Maryland Medical System hospitals have been recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2020 issue of Baltimore magazine.

The results are based on Baltimore magazine's annual survey of roughly 14,000 physicians in the Baltimore region who were asked to name the best doctors in more than 130 specialties and subspecialties. Nearly 20,000 names were submitted, and only those who received the highest number of recommendations by their peers made the list, according to the magazine.

UMMS hospitals represented include the University of Maryland Medical Center – Downtown Campus, University of Maryland Medical Center – Midtown Campus, University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center, University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center, University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health, University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute, and Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital. More than 150 of the UMMS doctors named are also faculty members at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

"We are extremely proud to see so many UMMS physicians recognized for their outstanding work and their dedication to providing compassionate, high-quality, patient and family-centered care. It's a true affirmation of their talents and experience as well as our focus on delivering the best possible care for our patients," said Mohan Suntha, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of UMMS. "Leveraging the size and scale of our statewide health system, we are continuing to transform the way we deliver health care to bring more value to our patients and their communities and these incredible doctors are on the front lines of that work."
