In a sign of increasing strain on Maryland hospitals, the state's rate-setting panel approved temporary increases yesterday for two financially troubled institutions, Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air and Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly. Also, the Maryland Hospital Association asked the Health Services Cost Review Commission for an additional statewide rate increase - above the adjustment approved just a month ago - for the fiscal year beginning in July. The commission's staff responded by calling for an added 0.4 percent, targeted to the most needy hospitals, rather than across the board.
