Morton Rapoport, M.D., president and CEO of six-hospital University of Maryland Medical System, Baltimore, has announced plans to retire in June 2004. Rapoport, 67, an infectious disease expert and former associate dean of the university’s School of Medicine, was hired in 1982 to head financially ailing University of Maryland Hospital. Under Rapoport, the university’s regional healthcare system was developed and now includes 609-bed University of Maryland Medical Center; 241-bed North Arundel Hospital, Glen Burnie, Md.; and 201-bed Maryland General Hospital, Baltimore. The system’s board will begin searching for a replacement later this year.
