The Office of Health Care Quality (OHCQ) is the agency within the Maryland Department of Health charged with monitoring the quality of care in Maryland's health care facilities and community-based programs. 

The Office of Health Care Quality licenses and certifies facilities and programs throughout Maryland. Licensing authorizes a facility to do business in the state. Certification authorizes a facility to participate in Medicare and Medicaid  Programs. OHCQ surveys these facilities and programs to determine compliance with State and federal regulations, which set forth minimum standards for the delivery of care.

OHCQ's mission is to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Maryland's citizens and to ensure there is public confidence in the health care and community service delivery systems.

OHCQ's vision is that all those receiving care in Maryland can trust that their health care facility or program is licensed and has met the regulatory standards for the services that they offer.
