Stephen C Schimpff MD


At his firth decade as physician, hospital executive and author, Dr. Stephen Schimpff is one of the world’s foremost health care experts. Appearing on national television, publishing more than 200 scientific articles, editing three textbooks, and frequently lecturing to both professional and lay audiences, Dr. Schimpff has a gift for explaining the complexities of health care delivery and the science of medicine in layman’s terms, and has a passion for advancing health care for future generations. Dr. Schimpff brings that passion to his three books for the general public, including the newly published The Future of Health Care Delivery – Why It Must Change and How It Will Affect You.

From the bedside — where he treated patients with acute leukemia and lymphoma, to the boardroom — where he served as the CEO of a major academic medical center, Dr. Schimpff has witnessed firsthand the explosion of diagnostic and treatment technologies, including the emergence of the genomics revolution, the acceptance of integrative medicine and dealt with the frustrations of our health care delivery system.

In 1999, Dr. Schimpff became Chief Executive Officer of the University of Maryland Medical Center, which includes the world’s preeminent trauma center, an NCI certified cancer center and one of the country’s largest kidney transplant programs. The Medical Center admits nearly 40, 000 patients per year, mostly for complex tertiary care, and employs more than 5, 000 people with a budget of about $1 billion. Dr. Schimpff is also a professor of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and he is a professor of public policy at the University of Maryland, College Park.
