EASTON — The Board of Directors of the University of Maryland Medical System has approved a plan by UM Shore Regional Health to submit a Letter of Intent to the Maryland Health Care Commission to construct a new regional medical center in Talbot County.

UM SRH has spent the last several years laying the groundwork for the advancement of the new regional medical center by making investments in other key supporting projects identified in the system’s integrated facility and clinical service delivery plan. The completion of the freestanding medical facility in Cambridge, several medical pavilions and stand-alone emergency rooms in the region, urgent care centers in Denton, Easton and Kent Island, and numerous major equipment upgrades have totaled over $150M in capital investments.
