Hagaman honored with citation

In a tribute by Gov. Martin O'Malley, Dr. Scott D. Hagaman, medical director of Linwood Center Inc., was honored for his accomplishments as president of MedChi (the Maryland State Medical Society), a professional organization.

The citation, presented to Dr. Hagaman on Sept. 29, credited him with guiding MedChi through several contentious issues during the 2007 session of the Maryland General Assembly: reauthorizing the Maryland Board of Physicians, which controls licensing and discipline of Maryland physicians; promoting the creation of a task force on health care access and reimbursement to investigate the adequacy of insurance payments to Maryland physicians; and advocating for legislation that banned smoking in indoor public spaces.

Linwood Center, a facility for the treatment of autism spectrum disorders in Ellicott City, is one of the oldest institutions of its kind worldwide.

Dr. Hagaman, a Columbia resident, also maintains a private practice in child and adolescent psychiatry.
