Maryland sees hospital building boom

Baltimore Sun, March 29, 2010

Central Maryland is in the midst of a healthcare building boom, with more than $2 billion worth of hospital expansion projects under construction or planned to begin this year in Baltimore and the surrounding counties. An additional $500 million worth of healthcare-related projects are in the works near Baltimore-area medical centers. While other development has slowed as a result of the recession, hospitals throughout the region are adding emergency rooms, operating suites, pediatric units, and other facilities. Additional life sciences buildings are also opening for researchers and lab technicians who want to be near hospitals or in one of Baltimore's two bioparks, the Baltimore Sun reports.
