The University of Maryland Medical Center's existing eight-story, state-of-the-art R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center was named after Dr. R Adams Cowley, a pioneer in trauma care. This facility opened in 1989 and has its own surgery suites, intensive care units, CT scanners and diagnostic imaging. It combines the highest level of patient care and teaching with research, leading to some of the most important advances in therapy for the critically injured.
Phase II: Homer Gudelsky Building (1994)
This facility, which opened in 1994, is named for noted philanthropist and local area real estate developer Homer S. Gudelsky. It is a 10-story facility that houses dedicated patient floors for neurocare, cardiac care, cancer care and organ transplantation.
Phase III: Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Building (2003 & 2006)
Funded by the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, this facility is one of the nation's most technologically advanced surgical facilities. Nurses, physicians and other staff played a major role in the design of the new clinical areas, which house spacious units for medical intensive care, cardiac surgery intensive care and telemetry and surgical acute care. The building also features state-of-the-art radiology facilities as well as the Adult and Pediatric Emergency Departments.
