Prince George’s Hospital Center

Prince George's Hospital Center is located in Cheverly, Maryland. A part of the Dimensions Healthcare System (which includes Laurel Regional Hospital and the Bowie Health Center), it was founded in 1944 and is a large teaching hospital.

PGHC provides care in a wide variety of areas, including emergency medicine and traumatic critical care, obstetrics (including a home-like birthing center with midwives), cardiac care, and a wide variety of surgical procedures.

Approximately half of the patients at Prince George's Hospital Center are on Medicaid or are uninsured which puts financial pressure on the facility.

But this is a low-quality hospital. Prince George's County residents hoping get good care and avoid medical malpractice have long driven past P.G. County hospitals to seek care in Washington, D.C., or Anne Arundel or Montgomery County.

In 2016, the University of Maryland is working the county and state officials to replace PGHC with a new $650 million facility in Largo. State approval is still needed.

The hospital has 421 beds, about 83,000 emergency room admissions per year, and 14,000 inpatient admissions per year. There are a little over 2,000 deliveries per year.

Prince George's County is a very good jurisdiction, relatively speaking, for plaintiffs, so most cases against PGHC are filed in the Prince George's County Circuit Court. Defense lawyers and insurance adjusters know this, and it can help grease the path to settlement in medical malpractice cases. Most cases filed in the Prince George's County Circuit Court get to trial within 15 months, sometimes even in a year from the date of filing.

A few years ago, Prince George's County Hospital was hit with a $16.5 million malpractice verdict in a cerebral palsy case.

Client Reviews

  • They quite literally worked as hard as if not harder than the doctors to save our lives.
  • Ron helped me find a clear path that ended with my foot healing and a settlement that was much more than I hope for.
  • Hopefully I won't need it again but if I do, I have definitely found my lawyer for life and I would definitely recommend this office to anyone!
  • The last case I referred to them settled for $1.2 million.
  • I am so grateful that I was lucky to pick Miller & Zois.
  • 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.
