Negotiators named in bid to find buyers for Maryland county’s hospital system
Prince George's County's finance chief and the deputy chief of staff to Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley have been appointed by the county and the state to negotiate with buyers for the hospitals in Prince George's hospital system. The next step is appointing an independent seven-member authority that will run the bidding process to find new hospital owners. The hospital system, which includes Prince George's Hospital Center, Laurel Regional Hospital, Bowie Health Campus, and two nursing homes, is owned by the county and managed by the nonprofit Dimensions Healthcare. In the effort to lure hospital bidders, the county and state must agree to pledge operating money and funds to help refurbish facilities.
