EAST NEW MARKET — Ken Kozel, CEO of University of Maryland Shore Regional Health, has big plans for Cambridge.

Tuesday evening at the East New Market Volunteer Fire Hall, Mr. Kozel announced the medical system’s intention to build two new, state-of-the-art facilities at Cambridge Marketplace on US Rt. 50, the site of the current Cambridge Plaza. The plans include a 20,000-square-foot emergency department with observation beds and 24-7 services, 365 days a year. Next door will be a 50,000-square-foot, two-story medical pavilion. According to the proposal, the facilities will be sited roughly where the vacant Kmart and social services buildings are now.

Mr. Kozel said that Shore Health is in the beginning phase of a multi-phase process to get the facilities built.
