Projected County Population
Key Point With a population approaching 1
million, the County needs an excellent
healthcare system.
Source Maryland Department of Planning.
Projected County Population By Age
Key Point Significant growth is projected in
the age cohort 65 most likely to have chronic
conditions and require healthcare and hospital
Source Maryland Department of Planning.
County Physicians By Age
Key Points At the same time that the County
is experiencing growth in the older population
that will increase healthcare demand, it is also
experiencing an aging of the physician work force
with one quarter now over age 60. Significant
physician development will be required.

50,000 Inpatients Leave The County
Go To Other Md. Counties
Go To D.C.
Remain In Prince Georges
Go To Montgomery
Key Point At 10,000 per admission,
out-migration represents about half a billion
dollars annually leaving the County.
Out-migration represents a substantial
opportunity for a new owner.

Key Points Indigent care in the County is
heavily concentrated at PGHC. There is no
major academic center with supporting HSCRC rates
in the County. Source HSCRC Database.

  • The hospital cannot operate without physicians
    to cover ER/Trauma, OB, NICU, Psychiatry,
    Critical Care, and Anesthesia.
  • The physician losses are real and not
  • Negotiations with physicians are aggressive.
  • Whoever operates the system will need a stable
    source of ongoing funding for un-reimbursed
    physician costs.
  • With an academic affiliation, a portion of these
    costs could be offset through the development of
    additional teaching programs.
  • Source Schedule UR 6 for FY 2007.

Age Of Plant Equipment FY 2006

equipment. The MHAs target is 8.5 years.
DHS is now at 22.4 year (5/2008 Financial
Statement) Major construction initiatives are
currently underway at Doctors, Howard County, and
Anne Arundel. Washington Adventist plans to
relocate and build a new hospital. Significant
capital investment is needed to address a decade
of under-funding for plant and equipment.
