All diabetes and endocrinology services are moving to University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus (UMMC Midtown Campus) in the spring of 2014. Below are answers to commonly asked questions.

Why is the UM Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology moving?
Simply put, we’ve out grown our space in the medical center. To better serve our current patients and support future patients, we need to move to a larger space. The goal is to provide comprehensive care for diabetes and endocrinology in one convenient location. The benefits for our patients will include a more comfortable setting, convenient parking, expanded space, additional diabetes-related services and even greater collaboration among your diabetes team.
What is the relationship between University of Maryland Medical Center and UMMC Midtown Campus?
In June 2013, Maryland General Hospital became the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus (UMMC Midtown Campus). The name reflects a closer alignment with the University of Maryland Medical Center. As members of the University of Maryland Medical System and as close neighbors, both hospitals serve the residents of Baltimore. By joining forces, we can best use the resources of both institutions and provide exceptional care to both our neighbors and the entire region.
When will the new location open?
The new location will open in the spring of 2014. The exact date will be announced in the coming months. If you have an appointment scheduled close to the time of the move, we will let you know in advance where to go for your appointment.
Will I have to change my doctor?
Your current physicians, nurse practitioners, and clinical teams will remain the same.
Will you still accept the same insurance? Will there be changes in my co-pay?
We will still accept the same insurance, but patients who currently receive care in the Redwood Building (419 Redwood St.) will see a change in the types of bills they receive. When you receive care at UMMC Midtown you will receive one bill for physician services and one bill for hospital services.
THE TYPES OF BILLS YOU MAY RECEIVE ARE:
The University of Maryland Faculty Physicians, Inc. will bill physician fees. The physician bill will include the cost of medical or surgical care as well as costs involving review and interpretation of your diagnostic tests (for example, the cost for the radiologist who reads your X-ray).
The hospital outpatient bill includes charges for the use of the hospital facility and any tests or procedures you undergo.
What services will be provided at the new location?
We will offer all of the same diabetes and endocrine-related services at UMMC Midtown Campus. In addition, diabetes patients will have easy access to the ophthalmology, vascular and wound care practices at UMMC Midtown, which are all staffed with University of Maryland School of Medicine physicians.
Where will I park at UMMC Midtown Campus?
UMMC Midtown has two paid parking facilities that are open 24 hours, 365 days a year to serve patients and visitors.
