As one of Maryland's fast growing communities, Charles County provides ample opportunities for healthcare providers and companies. The County's steady accelerated population growth has created an increased demand for healthcare services, with about 10 percent of the population 65 years of age and over.
The University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center, located in La Plata, offers a range of services to local residents and to citizens from neighboring towns and cities, including critical care, oncology, obstetrics, surgical care, orthopedics, rehabilitation and more. Named a top performer on key quality measures for four consecutive years by The Joint Commission, UM Charles Regional continues to advance with a brand new building and major investment in new technology.
Healthcare services providers can tap into the County's growing pool of medical professionals, with the College of Southern Maryland and University of Maryland offering programs in nursing, physical therapy, respiratory therapy, radiography and medical laboratory technology.
