Medical Examiners Feel Growing Pains; Looking to Move to UM BioPark

The Baltimore Sun

The three-story building that houses Maryland's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner was considered modern when it was built in 1968 with enough space to handle the needs of a growing state, and the changing technology to research causes of death. Now the Penn Street building is showing its age, and officials with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene want to move it to the University of Maryland BioPark, which is being built a few blocks away in West Baltimore.
