Washington County Hospital could not say Monday whether the trauma center would reopen by Labor Day weekend, a spokeswoman said.
Administrators said last week they hoped to hear back by Monday from trauma surgeons who were offered contracts.
Hospital administrators were unavailable to give an update Monday because they were out of the office at meetings, spokeswoman Maureen Theriault said.
The hospital closed its trauma center June 1, saying it could not cover all shifts with surgeons. Since then, more patients have been taken to other trauma centers in the Baltimore-Washington area.
Washington County Hospital probably will reopen as a lower-level center, President and CEO James Hamill has said.
For the past five years, surgeons have been available around-the-clock, allowing a Level II designation that was unique among rural Maryland hospitals.
