Healthcare Strategic Plan
The vision of County Executive Rushern L.

Since taking office, County Executive Baker has committed the County to addressing healthcare disparities and improving the healthcare delivery system and services for County residents. As a result of County Executive Baker’s leadership and vision, a new world-class, state-of-the-art Regional Medical Center is under development, as a part of a strategy to transform the County’s healthcare system into an efficient, effective, and financially viable healthcare delivery system.

Improving the Healthcare System & Health of Residents
The Primary Healthcare Strategic Plan reflects the ongoing commitment of Prince George’s County to improving the healthcare system and the health of its residents. The plan focuses both on expanding access to patient-centered primary care that is part of an integrated care system and on building a culture of health within the County. In order to achieve the “triple aim”-improving health outcomes, reducing per capita costs, and improving patient experience-it will be necessary to improve coordination of care within and across systems.
The County must also continue to address the conditions that shape health in the environments where people live, work, and play. The Primary Healthcare Strategic Plan fully embraces these concepts of population health and is on the leading edge of healthcare reform in the United States. Once implemented, in collaboration with all partners and stakeholders, the Primary Healthcare Strategic Plan will reach its goals of expanding access and improving residents’ health while contributing to the County’s economic development.
