University of MD Capital Region Medical Center


Welcome to the Prince George's County Council Regional Medical Center Information Portal! 

The state-of-the-art facility will replace the 75-year-old Prince George's Hospital Center, constructed as part of a strategy to transform the County's healthcare system into an efficient, effective and financially viable healthcare delivery system, and designed to transform healthcare for residents in Prince George's County and the Southern Maryland region.

During a presentation to community leaders and residents on Saturday, July 22, 2017, University of Maryland Medical Systems (UMMS) representatives announced the new Regional Medical Center will soon be renamed.   

The new hospital will be called the University of Maryland – Capital Region Health. (See full UMMS presentation under Related Documents)

"Access to quality health care, health promotion and disease prevention are priority concerns for the Prince George’s County Council, in its role as the Board of Health, and for our residents.  University of Maryland Capital Region Health is a game changer for Prince George’s County, and today’s groundbreaking is a major step forward for a joint partnership that is producing jobs, spurring economic development, transit-oriented development, and investment in our community, all while providing quality healthcare.   We are not just building a hospital.  We are building a future in Prince George’s County and scoring a big win for healthy communities and a thriving economy."

In addition to transforming healthcare, this new facility will provide an undeniable boost to our local economy!  Here is a snapshot of the fiscal impact of this project in Prince George’s County:

  • An anticipated 3,279 direct construction jobs in the County to be created from the $429.5 million construction budget
  • $634.9 million in economic development activity to be generated, with 4,853 total jobs supported because of project construction 
  • $397 million in economic activity in Prince George's County directly generated from the Regional Medical Center, with the support of an additional 2,641 additional workers.

This project, to be constructed in Largo, plays a significant role in the Redevelopment Plan of Largo Town Center as one of the first areas designated to be part of Downtown Prince George's, where business creation, job creation, and mixed-use center developments help create models for economic growth and development in the County.
