A shortage of physicians in Western Maryland has prompted one of the region’s largest health systems to create a medical school. Meritus Health will invest $160 million to create the Meritus School of Osteopathic Medicine in Hagerstown, the county seat of Washington County. Along with academic facilities, the planned 190,000-square-foot-school will include student housing for some of the school’s planned 720 students.
