Dimensions partnership with U-Md. new sign of likely deal for Pr. George’s Hospital Center

Dimensions Healthcare has entered into a contract with the University of Maryland medical system to offer orthopedic medical services at Prince George’s Hospital Center, a key sign that a proposal to create a regional medical system and build a new public hospital in Prince George’s is moving ahead.
