    A panel has approved a needed application to replace the Prince George's Hospital Center and creating the Prince George's Regional Medical Center in Largo. 

    The Maryland Health Care Commission voted 11-0 on Thursday for the certificate of need application by Dimensions Health Corp. to relocate and replace the hospital center. 

    The regional medical center will have 205 acute-inpatient beds. It will provide all of the services available at the current hospital, including the 15-bed special pediatric unit of Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. 

    The replacement hospital will be owned and operated by the University of Maryland Medical System. 

    Funding comes from $127 million in new debt, $208 million from Prince George's County and $208 million from the state. The medical center is expected to open in 2020.
