Ensure access to care and improve hospital throughput for all Marylanders

Make certain all Marylanders have seamless access to quality health care by enhancing hospital throughput, eliminating barriers that hinder smooth transitions to the next level of care, and ensuring all Marylanders can reach the care they need when they need it.

Strengthen Maryland’s health care and hospital workforce

Recognize the invaluable role of health care professionals by fortifying Maryland’s health care and hospital workforce.

Protect Maryland’s liability climate and maintain the state as a viable place to practice medicine

Until comprehensive reform can be achieved, protect against further erosion in the state’s existing liability climate so Maryland remains a premiere location for medical practice.
