News and Updates
The AAMC Breast Center is the only center in the region that offers a high-risk program for women who are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer.
The Risk Assessment and Prevention (RAPP) program identifies women who have a higher risk of the disease and provides them with important information to help reduce their risk. More than one thousand area women are part of RAPP.
Participants meet with specialists who review their medical history in detail and undergo a thorough breast exam. Specialists then work with participants using advanced tools and genetic counseling, to educate patients about how to reduce their risk in the future. Learn more here.
Medical staff, employees and auxilians who are military veterans: AAMC is hosting a lunch in your honor on Monday, Nov. 11 from noon to 1pm in the Southport Eatery. RSVP at events@AAHS.org or x4710. Veterans are invited to wear their military uniforms. All employees, auxilians and medical staff are welcome to join in the celebration and pay tribute to their family members and friends who have served in the military, and are encouraged to wear patriotic attire.
As of October 1, Maryland Health Connection, the state’s new health insurance marketplace, opened, making it simpler and more affordable for an estimated 250,000 uninsured Marylanders to purchase health insurance.
AAMC is working to raise public awareness of these new health insurance options by offering guidance through our patient financial services department and making sure hospital staff are aware of where patients and their families can go to find out if they are eligible and submit an application. One of our greatest resources is our team of assisters. Based in our financial assistance office (in the Hospital Pavilion North near the first floor lobby) and our
community clinics, they will help individuals understand their insurance options. Anyone who needs assistance understanding the new exchanges and options available to them can contact the assisters and set up an appointment to discuss their options. They can be reached by calling x1782.

By working together to get our community members the proper health insurance they need and deserve, our neighbors and our hospital can be healthier—and that helps everyone.
It’s time again for Anne Arundel Medical Center’s United Way of Central Maryland annual fundraising campaign! We are grateful for your continuing generosity throughout the years, and we look forward to an even more successful campaign in 2013.
To get you in the spirit, watch a video featuring this year’s Wizard of Oz theme and look out for some people you may know!
Giving is a personal choice, but every little bit helps. You’re invited you to consider donating to our local United Way this year. When you donate to United Way of Central Maryland, your gift goes directly to many of the most needed programs in our community. United Way doesn’t focus on just one program or one solution–they are focused on the issues that really matter, like helping sustain and stabilize the region’s most vulnerable and at-risk. This is vital to every person, every family and every neighborhood. They are helping to change lives every single day–by helping meet emergency needs like food, shelter and access to health care.
Your support is needed. Together, we can create changes that will help our friends and neighbors.
On behalf of Anne Arundel Medical Center, United Way of Central Maryland, and those who benefit from your generosity, thank you.
