The Prince George’s County Council
concluded its 2018 Annual Retreat with Board of Health updates provided by
Board of Health Consultant, Dr. Joseph Wright, and an overview of University of
Maryland Capital Region Health on Friday, January 5, 2018.
Council Chair Glaros, addressing her
colleagues and session facilitators, noted the tremendous progress taking place
in the area of healthcare and the work that lies ahead.
“There is a lot happening in
healthcare in Prince George’s County. The conversations happening today
wouldn’t have been possible eight years ago, or even three years ago. We are at
a remarkable point in time, really, truly changing the health outcomes for our
residents here in Prince George’s County and moving health care forward. This
is a pivotal moment, we can lose momentum or we can gain it and really hit
those outcomes that we want to see in Prince George’s County. That task
is for us as a team.”
Chair Glaros and the Council also
recognized the dedicated service of outgoing University of Maryland Capital
Region Health President and CEO Neil Moore, thanking him for his work to
provide access to quality healthcare for the residents of Prince George’s
County. He will continue with the healthcare system until June.
The day’s events concluded with a
discussion focused on preparing for At-Large Council seats after the 2018
General Election and administrative process updates.
