History of Anne Arundel Medical Center

Founded in 1902 as The Annapolis Emergency Hospital, the facility grew rapidly in its early years from a small renovated farmhouse in downtown Annapolis to an expanded campus with a maternity ward and a 300- bed capacity. By 1959, the hospital had changed its name to Anne Arundel General Hospital and earned accreditation from the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Hospitals. The accelerated growth continued through the next several decades as an intensive care unit, coronary care unit, and a state of the art outpatient IV medication program were added. In 1988, the facility changed its name again to Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC)  and began plans for a large-scale expansion to better accommodate the 16,000 inpatients receiving treatment annually. Construction on the new campus was completed in December 2001.

Today the Anne Arundel Medical Center is a non-profit facility that serves a region of over one million people. It is the cornerstone of the Anne Arundel Health System, a network of medical facilities in Anne Arundel County that includes primary and specialty satellite offices, imaging centers, and a substance abuse treatment center.

Anne Arundel Medical Center in the News

In June 2019 AAMC agreed to remit $3.154 million to the federal government to resolve a lawsuit alleging it engaged in fraudulent medical billing of taxpayer funded programs. The claim was brought by Barbara McHenry, a former AAMC employee turned whistleblower who contended that over a three-year period the facility submitted medically unnecessary claims for blood clotting tests of patients at its Anticoagulation Clinic. As the claims were submitted to federal healthcare agencies such as Medicare, TRICARE, and the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, AAMC was accused of violating the False Claims Act, a law that places liability on entities that defraud government programs.

Under the qui tam, or whistleblower, provision of the False Claims Act, Barbara McHenry was able to file suit directly against AAMC on behalf of the U.S. government. She received $473,100 as part of the settlement agreement.

Some of the major personal injury attorneys that regularly sue AAMC for medical malpractice are: Schochor, Federico And Staton, P.A., Littlepage & Associates, The Law Office Of Peter G. Angelos P.C., and Weltcheck, Mallahan & Weltchek, LLC. As the hospital is based in Anne Arundel County, most of the cases filed in the Maryland circuit court system against AAMC were in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. If you or a loved one have been injured by AAMC, you should contact a personal injury lawyer to assess your claim.
