The Maryland Health Care Commission
and Maryland's Hospitals
The Maryland Health Care Commission is an independent regulatory agency whose mission is to plan for health system needs, promote informed decision-making, increase accountability, and improve access in a rapidly changing health care environment by providing timely and accurate information on availability, cost, and quality of services to policy makers, purchasers, providers and the public.
Hospitals work with the commission to ensure quality care by participating on statewide work groups
and when advocating for additional hospital capacity in various geographical locations
