UMMS: Suntha At The Helm
Millions of Marylanders get care from the University of Maryland Medical System, UMMS. Last year one-fourth of all the hospital visits in the state were made to one of the 13 hospitals that are part of UMMS. But most news headlines about the system last year described devious contracts and unethical practices on its board.
The old board has been replaced, and the new board picked a new CEO Dr. Mohan Suntha, a cancer doctor who has worked at UMMS almost three decades. He says he knows how to keep UMMS true to its mission.
