University of Maryland Shore Regional Health (UMSRH) filed a Certificate of Need application for the Regional Medical Center at Easton project with the Maryland Health Care Commission.  This action marks another step towards opening the new hospital and medical services building on the SRH-owned site near the Talbot County Community Center. 

UM Shore Regional Health’s proposal is to build a new facility to replace its current hospital. The application proposes constructing a total of 142 beds (122 acute inpatient and 25 observation beds) and includes emergency, surgery, labor and delivery, and support services, all located on 230 acres.  

UM SRH has spent the last several years laying the ground work for the advancement of the new Regional Medical Center by making investments in other key supporting projects identified in the System’s 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. Plans are also moving forward in Chestertown with the construction of an Aging & Wellness Center on its current campus.
