County Executive Pittman Issues Statement on Release of Maryland Department of Health Master Plan, Crownsville Hospital
Annapolis, MD (Sept. 3, 2021) - Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman’s comments regarding the release of the Maryland Department of Health Facilities Master Plan, which calls for the State to divest its interest in Crownsville Hospital Center:
“When I first met with Governor Hogan after taking office, we discussed my desire to transform the state’s neglected Crownsville Hospital Center into the green heart at the center of our county where the power of nature could be deployed to embrace the healing work of nonprofit providers of health and wellness. I suggested that the land be transferred to the county so that our local communities could oversee planning.
Governor Hogan expressed support for the concept, and his team asked us to await the completion of the Master Plan that was released yesterday. We are eager to get started negotiating a transfer agreement with the state and engaging our residents.”
