ANNAPOLIS, MD (May 21, 2010) – Governor Martin O’Malley issued this statement today following the release of the Prince George’s Hospital Authority’s final report.
“I want to thank Chairman Ken Glover, and all the members of the Prince George’s Hospital Authority for the time and extraordinary effort they put into this process. It remains our strong commitment to improving access and quality of healthcare for the people of Prince George’s County. There is still work ahead of us in this process. The Authority’s report and recommendations provide a pathway for the state and county to work together, leveraging a combination of existing assets and public funds to build a new healthcare delivery system with greater access to primary care, and ultimately, a new hospital.
“I look forward to continuing the work ahead with County Executive Johnson, the County Council, legislators from the area, and all Prince George’s County stakeholders to achieve these goals.”
