University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center opens new intensive care unit wing

December 12, 2022

University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center opened a new wing of its critical care unit Tuesday. The renovation, which will include 22 new intensive care beds, will allow the Glen Burnie hospital to potentially more than double its capacity if it can hire additional workers to staff the unit, hospital officials said. The new ICU wing was converted over the course of more than a year from a telemetry unit, which was moved to another space in the hospital. The renovation of the 17,000-square-foot space was funded by a $3 million grant from the state of Maryland and other private and public funding, said hospital spokesperson Holly Basta.
