UM Shore Regional Health plans new regional medical center

University of Maryland Shore Regional Health will submit a letter of intent in November to the Maryland Health Care Commission regarding the construction of a new Regional Medical Center in Talbot County, according to an Oct. 12 news release shared with Becker's.

The facility design encompasses over 325,000 square feet, with an adjacent medical office and outpatient services building occupying an additional 60,000 square feet. Final specifications are subject to state regulatory approval and planning commission support. 

"Building a new Regional Medical Center in Easton marks the most significant milestone in fulfilling our decades-long integrated facility and clinical service delivery plan. Our growing communities expect and deserve access to a state-of-the-art center with advanced clinical care," said Ken Kozel, president and CEO of UM Shore Regional Health. 

The new regional medical center campus is slated to occupy over 230 acres adjacent to the Talbot County Community Center. This location is approximately 3.5 miles from the current hospital and will provide greater visibility, and easier and safer access for ambulance and helicopter transport, according to the release.
