Two goals, one health care mission for our community

Caring for Our Families Together

Providing high-quality care for our neighbors requires collaboration and support of our entire community.  With key partnerships serving as the foundation for UM UCH’s success, private and philanthropic funding allows us to meet the diverse needs of Harford County, offering flexible and affordable care that is close to home.

With the opportunity at UM UCH to support programs, initiatives, and technology, you can join this effort and play a critical role in the future of Harford County’s health.

Strengthen our services and reshape behavioral health care

GOAL 1

Cancer LifeNet at the Kaufman Cancer Center

Cancer Lifenet

For those in our community moving through the cancer journey, Cancer LifeNet is a source of strength and comfort.

As part of the Kaufman Cancer Center, Cancer LifeNet connects patients with experts, support teams, and communities of survivors to create a holistic approach to treatment and care for patients and families who need it.

Curing the disease is one medical aspect of the work; bringing patients and families to spiritual, financial, and emotional wholeness captures the essence of Cancer LifeNet.

It is local caregivers providing local support to friends, neighbors, and families when it is needed most.

Senator Bob Hooper House

Senator Bob Hooper House

Support from the community makes this beautiful and comfortable house feel like a home. The Senator Bob Hooper House was built for the community, by the community, with a vision that every family should have a peaceful, supportive setting to come together during a loved one’s final days.

At the Hooper House, professionals with specialized expertise serve both residents and their families with a coordinated program of hospice care and support services, helping them through the myriad of issues associated with end-of-life care.

Technology and Innovation at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health

Establishing a Technology and Innovation Fund at UM UCH will ensure that we have the technology, equipment, and tools to provide the best local programs to patients and families when they need it.

With this resource in place to support the highest quality of programs possible, UM UCH will enhance overall services to patients, reduce the time that patients need to receive care, and enable patients to be treated right here in Harford County.

Supporting technology and innovation at UM UCH offers three key benefits for patients: less painful procedures, faster recovery, and better outcomes.
