UM UCH submits additional regulatory requirements for building plans on HdG property:
Today, the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health (UM UCH) submitted required regulatory applications for its plan to reshape the delivery of health care in Harford and Cecil counties. The health system applied for a Certificate of Need filing for the special psychiatric hospital in Havre de Grace as well as Certificate of Exemption filings for the conversion of UM HMH to a freestanding medical facility and the consolidation of acute medical surgical beds at the UM UCMC campus. Approval of all three of these applications is required before we can begin construction of the new multi-services medical campus on the Bulle Rock property located at Interstate 95 and Route 155.
UM UCH’s plans, estimated at $160 million, will include a Freestanding Medical Facility—encompassing a full service Emergency Department, short stay observation beds, as well as outpatient and ambulatory care services within an on-campus Medical Office Building and a Behavioral Health Pavilion.
The new medical campus in Havre de Grace and expansion of UM Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air will replace the existing UM Harford Memorial Hospital in downtown Havre de Grace in the late 2020 timeframe.
“Our Vision 2020 plans are simple – we intend to reshape health care by providing the best possible care to our community. This requires the building of a modern, innovative campus that is easily accessible and expandable as needed,” said Lyle E. Sheldon, president and CEO of University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health.
The opening of the new medical campus in Havre de Grace is projected to take place in late 2020.
