...my practice gets valuable support...


"As a community-based physician, UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center truly supports my practice. They provide key equipment - from density machines to stress tests and vascular ultrasound - that allows us to increase revenues through procedures and testing done here at our office. Patients are glad that they can get their tests done in their primary care doctor's office instead of being referred out to an unknown facility. And the hospital referral line and website continually help me to acquire new patients."

"...growing and innovative..."


"I work with a young and exciting department of surgery, and with people who are excited about providing excellent quality care, doing good research and teaching. So for me, the attraction for working at UMMS was to be in a department that was growing, that was innovative.

"I can work in a variety of practice environments, so I’m essentially practicing community medicine, but with the strength of the University behind me. To me, that is the best part because after being in medicine for almost 10 years, I can still enjoy the freedom that I would normally enjoy with my own private practice, but with the ability to teach and do research as well."

"...I was craving accountability..."


"I came to University of Maryland Shore Regional Health's Memorial Hospital at Easton from a large institution in a large city. I was craving accountability. I wanted a hospital that cared on a personal level for the people in the community. I wanted to be at a hospital where the physicians were not just numbers to the administration. At UM Shore Regional Health's Memorial Hospital at Easton , we are a community; from the CEO to the volunteers, we each have a place and a name, and an important role to play in our institution.

"This organization understands that every team member is an integral part to creating a healthier community. The patients know that the hospital cares about them as individuals and this builds strength for the entire community."

"...encourages advanced education..."


"When University of Maryland Medical Center - Midtown Campus decided to devote a formulized service line to our growing population of geriatric patients, I came on board as medical director, and helped to design both inpatient and outpatient services for this population. Today, our ACE Unit (acute care unit for the elderly) is the only existing program within the city limits, and growing at a rapid rate.

"It's a true interdisciplinary team effort.and a very relaxed atmosphere, conducive to learning. And because UMMC - Midtown Campus encourages advanced education, this is a wonderful opportunity for growth for any physician."

"...the feeling of excitement..."


"I am the department head of general surgery at University of Maryland Midtown Campus and have been here since July 1, 2006. What attracted me was the projected 10-year plan, which includes renovation, at least 10 new operating rooms, and an integrated ICU and GI suite. There's something new happening here, something exciting, and I wanted to be a part of that growth.

"I think that all one needs to do is walk around and talk to those of us who work here - whether we're new, or have been here for many years - to understand the feeling of excitement this growth has generated. I'd be the proud to tell anyone, 'Let me just take you around, show you a couple of the places we're working on now, and then let me show you the model of what that's going to be in three to four short years.'"
