Maryland leaders appoint authority for system owner search
Washington Post, June 16, 2008
Maryland leaders convened at the Prince George's Hospital Center to swear in a seven-member authority charged with finding an owner for the county's struggling hospital system. The group said the creation of the authority is the first step in a journey to provide the system long-term stability. The group will accept bids from companies interested in taking over the system, which includes Laurel Regional Hospital, Bowie Health Campus and two nursing homes. It is now owned by Prince George's County and managed by the nonprofit Dimensions Healthcare System.
