Six hospitals in rural Maryland will implement Baltimore-based Visicu’s eICU Program in their intensive care units, thanks to a $3 million grant from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (Owings Mill, Md.).

The six hospitals, known collectively as Maryland eCare, united two years ago to find a solution to the critical care physician shortage.

The participating hospitals — which collectively admit more than 66,000 patients every year — include Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin; Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick; Civista Medical Center in La Plata; Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury; St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown; and Washington County Health System in Hagerstown.

Maryland eCare’s remote monitoring center will be based at the Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, Del.
