Maryland Watch

April 27, 1996

Baltimore's new NFL team has tapped the University of Maryland Medical Center to provide medical care for its players. The center was one of several Baltimore area health care providers that submitted proposals to the Ravens.

The medical center has recruited two sports medicine specialists experienced in sports and family medicine, including a doctor who worked with the team for the past five years in Cleveland.

Claude T. Moorman III, an orthopedic surgeon with special training in sports medicine, was hired as director of sports medicine by the university's medical system. He has served as an assistant team physician for the New York Giants and head physician for the Durham Bulls, a minor league baseball franchise.

Andrew M. Tucker, who provided primary care for the Cleveland Browns, will join the University of Maryland School of Medicine's faculty, coming from the Cleveland Clinic Section of Sports Medicine. The two will join the university's medical staff in June.

The sports medicine program will have its headquarters at the medical system's rehabilitation center at Kernan Hospital in Woodlawn.
