University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center (UM BWMC) is offering a new home-based emergency service to Anne Arundel County residents. Individuals who are not able to travel to a physician's office, emergency department or urgent care center and need medical treatment will be able to contact UM BWMC's Mobile Care team, which travels to their location and offers same-day medical care.

“There are instances where an emergency will happen, whether someone sustains a laceration to their hand … that requires stitches or a burn to the arm while ironing clothing that needs urgent medical attention,” said Chirag Chaudhari, chair of emergency medicine at UM BWMC. “Mobile Care allows patients to receive prompt, high-quality care in the comfort of his or her own home or workplace in a timely manner.”

A UM BWMC physician or advanced practice provider will arrive at the home or workplace and diagnose and treat the person requiring care. Providers are able to diagnose and treat non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, which include the following:

·         Allergies

·         Burns, rashes and bites

·         Colds, coughs, strep throat and flu

·         Cuts and bruises

·         Eye injuries

·         Fracture diagnosis and initial treatment

·         Headaches and earaches

·         Infections

·         Laceration repair and abscess treatment

·         Mild nausea, vomiting and diarrhea

·         Sprains and strains

·         Suture and staple removal

Mobile Care hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 8:00pm. To request service or receive more information, call 410-787-4390 or visit
