Tomorrow – UMMC Celebrates 200 Years in 2023
Future of Innovation
UMMC continues to expand to meet the needs of the community.
New construction projects include the recently completed Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Unit at the University of Maryland Children's Hospital (UMCH), a first-in-the-state space designed to provide children and teens experiencing acute mental health crises a safe and healing space to recover. In response to the increasing number of children and teens needing emergency psychiatric care, UMCH is also renovating its Pediatric Emergency Department to provide a more private and dedicated space for triaging patients.
This fall, UMMC Midtown Campus welcomed patients to a new 10-story Outpatient Services Tower. The Outpatient Tower provides patients with multiple health conditions specialty care under one roof.
Construction is also underway on the Roslyn and Leonard Stoler Center for Advanced Medicine, which will become the home of the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC). The tower will allow UMGCCC to provide the most technologically advanced, integrated care to cancer patients across the region.
Physicians at UMMC are faculty members at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM). UMMC has research partnerships with the University of Maryland, Baltimore graduate and professional schools. These partnerships bring innovative treatments into reality.
UMSOM faculty at UMMC successfully transplanted a genetically modified pig heart to a patient with no other medical options. The transplant demonstrated for the first time that a genetically-modified animal heart can function like a human heart without immediate rejection by the body.
UMMC looks forward to training many more generations of health professionals and remaining an international leader in patient care.
