As our state and nation respond to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) is no doubt on the front lines of this health care challenge and will do what is necessary to care for our patients, our workforce, and our communities.

We have implemented strategic protocols in order to provide the best care possible for the people of Maryland and our nation. Our system-wide Incident Command Structure, led by Dr. David Marcozzi, has been hard at work and is well positioned to handle this public health crisis. We continue to commit resources to the critical work at hand; maximize our capacity to protect and care for patients and communities; expedite vaccine testing and development through the University of Maryland School of Medicine; and serve as a resource for the public and our partners in the state and federal government.

How You Can Help

This is a time for us all to pull together. Every day, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases rises throughout Maryland. The need for philanthropic support has reached a new level of importance and urgency.
