About the University of Maryland Medical Center

UMMCThe University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) is the flagship academic medical center at the heart of UMMS and includes the 789-bed downtown Baltimore campus and the 177-bed midtown campus one mile north. The medical staff comprises nearly 1,200 attending physicians who are faculty members at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, as well as 900 residents and fellows in all medical specialties.

UMMC is home to the Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center and The R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, the highest-volume trauma center in the United States.

UMMC was established in 1823 in partnership with the first public medical school in the nation. Today, as then, all attending physicians at UMMC are faculty members at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

Major Centers and Services

The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center is one of some 50 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers and ranked among the top 50 cancer centers in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.


The University of Maryland Division of Transplantation is one of the nation’s most active transplant programs — performing more than 400 organ transplants a year. The Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients has recognized UMMC for above-average outcomes for adults undergoing living-donor transplant.


The University of Maryland Heart and Vascular Center is a national leader in minimally invasive treatment options.


The world-class University of Maryland Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology is recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, and is based at UMMC’s midtown campus.

A Regional Center for Specialty and Critical Care

UMMC is a leader in time-sensitive critical care, with referrals coordinated by Maryland ExpressCare. Nearly one-third of all beds at UMMC are dedicated to critical care, also called intensive care, in 11 specialized units dedicated to subspecialties such as neurotrauma, cardiac surgery, cardiac care and neurological critical care. In the last two years, UMMC opened three innovative units: the Critical Care Resuscitation Unit, the Lung Rescue Unit and the Thoracic Intermediate Care Unit, the first of its kind in the region dedicated to thoracic surgery patients.


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, UMMC expanded its Biocontainment Unit to care for COVID-19 patients in the region who need ECMO and other highly specialized care.


The Level IV Drs. Rouben and Violet Jiji Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital provides the highest level of care to babies born prematurely or with complications. Neonatology faculty at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have discovered that lighting and sound levels matter for tiny infants, so the new 52-bed NICU emulates the environment in a mother’s womb.


The Beacon Award for Excellence — the most prestigious national recognition for critical care — has been awarded to three UMMC units, most recently to the Multi-Trauma Intermediate Care 6 Unit.


The Joint Commission recognizes UMMC as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, a designation awarded to 113 centers in the US.


UMMC is among the less than 10 percent of US hospitals with Magnet Designation for nursing excellence, as recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.


Both campuses of UMMC provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services in behavioral health, for children, adolescents and adults.
