Last year more than 8000 people in Maryland arrived at our door because we are the only trauma hospital specifically designated to treat the most critically injured people. Our current building was built in 1989 at a time when we admitted 2500 patients each year. Every day is a struggle to get the next admission, the next transfer in. Our new building will ensure we meet that demand and expand our current accommodations as injuries become more common and special populations like the elderly are at risk. We desperately need new space!
