Maryland county hospital panel’s chief faces daunting task

Washington Post, June 26, 2008

A group of leaders is getting started on a year-long effort to find a new owner for the struggling Prince George's County (MD) hospital system. Kenneth E. Glover, the man chosen as chairman of the state-created authority, has three decades of experience engineering big deals—but this could be one of the hardest. The next hurdle is waiting for the state and the county to finish negotiating how much both are willing to pony up to coax a business or consortium into bidding for parts or all of the system. The system consists of Prince George's Hospital Center, Laurel Regional Hospital, Bowie Health Campus and two nursing homes.
