Success Stories - University of Maryland Medical Center

Overview of Case Study

UMMC is the academic medical center of the 13-hospital University of Maryland Medical System. The initial UMMC structure was built in 1937, and six additions from 1957 to 2013 have brought the facility’s floorspace to 2.5 million square feet.
