The University of Maryland Medical Center plans to add three inpatient floors atop a planned 10-story outpatient center at its Midtown campus, center officials said Thursday.

The hospital is adding the floors in anticipation of future patient care needs and an expected expansion of services offered at the Midtown campus, according to Karen Lancaster, a spokeswoman for the center.

The $100 million outpatient center at the Midtown campus, formerly known as Maryland General Hospital, won regulatory approval in March and is slated to focus on chronic disease management and community health.

Construction is slated to begin soon and the building is expected to open in 2019. It will take the place of an administrative building.
