University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center (UM UCMC) and Campus is located in the heart of Bel Air
in Harford County, Maryland. The state-of-the-art medical center provides
the latest advances in medical technology in a healing and compassionate
This premier health care facility incorporates several
trends that reflect how health care is changing, including reorientation
towards outpatient care, more acutely ill patients in the hospital, and
flexibility for growth and change to meet our community's future
health care needs.
The Medical Center's patient rooms reflect a patient
and family-centered model of care, creating an atmosphere in which the
patient and family or support person can be together at all times in
a comfortable, relaxed, and private setting. The rooms feature a home-like
decor and were designed to enhance the healing process and make
the needs of the patient and family the main priority.
Since it opened its doors in 2000, UM UCMC has grown in services and size. An expansive renovation
program completed in 2008 included a new, expanded Emergency Department
including an area focused on pediatric patients and surgical and inpatient
bed capacity. A brand new parking garage and physician office pavilion
brought convenience and much needed outpatient services to the campus.
Adjacent to the Medical Center is the Klein Ambulatory Care Center of Harford County, containing physician offices, outpatient imaging
and laboratory procedures, outpatient pre-assessment testing, UM UCH Cardiovascular Institute, the UM UCH Surgical Pavilion, and the administrative offices of UM UCH.
Also located next to the medical center, is a pre-existing medical office
building with physician offices and other healthcare related services.
