North Arundel Hospital has added scanning technology for patients who may have certain types of cancer. In conjunction with Advanced Radiology, the hospital recently acquired the Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography scanner. The system is housed in North Arundel Hospital's PET center, 301 Hospital Dr., Glen Burnie. According to the hospital, the system takes high-quality pictures, revealing tumors that may go undetected by traditional scanners.

Provident Bank recently opened a branch in the SuperFresh grocery store of the Odenton Shopping Center, 1155 Annapolis Rd., Odenton. It is the 12th Provident Bank branch to open in the county and is part of Provident's efforts to expand services to the Odenton and Western Anne Arundel County area. The bank is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays.
