Strife eroded University of Maryland Medical System goals
Baltimore Sun, August 25, 2008
The University of Maryland Medical System started planning a $350 million ambulatory care center more than two years ago, but disputes and infighting at the organization have helped to stymie the project. That kind of gridlock among leadership of the medical system is one of the factors that led to the resignation of one-third of its board. The system, which oversees hospitals in Baltimore and throughout the state, has been beset by a number of competing agendas that have not only stalled progress but left a wake of distrust, current and former board members said.
