Michael Schwartzberg:

More than 250 physicians in 90 specialties and sub-specialties who provide care across University of Maryland Medical System hospitals are recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2022 issue of Baltimore magazine. Of the doctors recognized, 146 practice at the System's flagship academic hospital, the University of Maryland Medical Center, and are also on the faculty of the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

"We are honored once again to have so many of our physicians included on this prestigious list," said Mohan Suntha, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of UMMS. "Being recognized by peer physicians is one of the strongest validations of their work as clinicians providing compassionate, high-quality health care for tens of thousands of patients every year."

The "Top Doctors" results are based on Baltimore magazine's annual survey of thousands of physicians in the Baltimore region who were asked to name the best doctors; the list covers 116 specialties and subspecialties and more than 600 doctors who received the highest number of recommendations by their peers are included.

UMMS hospitals represented in "Top Docs" include the University of Maryland Medical Center – Downtown Campus; University of Maryland Medical Center – Midtown Campus, both located in Baltimore City; University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie (Anne Arundel County); University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson (Baltimore County); University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center (Bel Air) and University of Maryland Harford Memorial Hospital (Havre de Grace), both in Harford County, and University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute, located in Baltimore City.
