The University of Maryland Medical System Board will look different soon – in composition and in policy.
As an explosive 41-page report examining self-dealing and family relationships between 11 board members and the medical system was released Wednesday afternoon, Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) named 11 new members to the board, while UMMS leaders embraced many of the sweeping reforms that the report recommended.
Not all of the new board members will replace members who were named in the report – some of whom were invited this week to return to their positions after voluntary leaves of absence.
The entire board will be overhauled by Jan. 1 under reform legislation passed in Annapolis this year, which ends the terms of all current board members and subjects the medical system to tighter rules regarding financial deals.
