Maryland General Hospital | UMMC

Dealing With This Baltimore Hospital on Medical Malpractice Claims

Maryland General Hospital now uses the name University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus (UMMC). It is an acute care hospital in Baltimore, Maryland in Mt. Vernon that is part of the University of Maryland Medical Systems.  

It has 200 beds, and practices in most areas, including general surgery, wound care, emergency medicine, cardiology, orthopedics, and obstetrics/gynecology. It is a teaching hospital, which means that much of the care is provided by medical residents. It has about 500 doctors and 1,100 employees.  The hospital is building a new seven-story, 107,000-square-foot center focusing on metabolic diseases across the street from UMMC at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Linden Avenue. The new outpatient center will be adjacent to an existing parking garage.

UMMC moved its obstetric services about one mile away to the main UMMC campus in 2013.  The stated reason was a 50 percent decline in deliveries.  The fact that UMMC was middle of a birth injury lawsuit that later resulted in a $3 million verdict may have also contributed to the demise of their obstetric services. 

Where To File Maryland General Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Baltimore City is a good place for lawyers to file Maryland medical malpractice lawsuits. Our law firm has gotten numerous 7 figure verdicts and settlements in Baltimore City.  Baltimore City jurors have been to hospitals in the City and are not surprised to find out that doctors and nurses at these hospitals have been accused of medical malpractice.  These jurors are less likely to believe that it is impossible that a doctor would make a mistake. 

UMMC is not a bad hospital.  The Midtown Campus was named a 2014–2015 Best Regional Hospital in Baltimore by U.S. News & World Report.  But, like many hospitals, it has its fair share of screwups that lead to medical malpractice injury and wrongful death lawsuits.

  • The entire team from the intake Samantha to the lawyer himself (Ron Miller) has been really approachable.
    ★★★★★
  • The case settled and I got a lot more money than I expected. Ron even fought to reduce how much I owed in medical bills so I could get an even larger settlement.
    ★★★★★
  • Miller and Zois is the best firm in the state of Maryland, and without their support, understanding, and just being there when I needed encouragement, I truly do not know how I would have succeeded without them.
