Union Memorial Hospital Malpractice Claims

Medical Malpractice Claims Involving This Hospital

Union Memorial Hospital Mercy Medical Center is a teaching hospital owned by MedStar located in Charles Village, close to downtown Baltimore City. It was founded in 1854, and now employs 650 physicians and over 2,500 employees.


Union Memorial has 229 beds and emphasizes its orthopedics - which has some of the best doctors in the world - and cardiac care departments. It also has a general surgery department and emergency medicine services.

The hospital sees over 58,000 emergency room visits per year and brings in over $400 million in revenue. A few years ago the hospital opened a helipad for transport of patients which is obviously a big deal in getting serious injury patients treated quickly.
