The University of Maryland Medical Center and its R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center today kicked off a fundraising campaign for a $160 million, nine-floor building — with former Baltimore Oriole Cal Ripken Jr. as honorary chairman. The trauma/critical care building, scheduled to open in 2013 at the northeast corner of Penn and Lombard streets, is one of the largest construction projects to get under way in Baltimore this year. The building will be the first major expansion of Shock Trauma since it opened in 1989 and will result in the creation of 300 construction jobs and hundreds more permanent jobs.
