Mission and Vision

During the past decade, changes in the health care landscape have ushered in new opportunities to meet increasingly high expectations in quality, accessibility, efficiency and patient satisfaction. As University of Maryland Shore Regional Health expands the regional health care network, we have explored and renewed our mission, vision and values to reflect a changing health care environment and our communities’ needs.

Community Health Needs Assessment

University of Maryland Shore Regional Health, in accordance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("ACA"), conducted a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for the five counties of Maryland’s Mid-Shore.

University of Maryland Shore Regional Health is a regional, nonprofit, medical delivery care network formed on July 1, 2013, through the consolidation of two University of Maryland partner entities, the former Shore Health and the former Chester River Health.

The UM Shore Regional Health network serves the Mid-Shore region, which includes Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, and Talbot counties. In addition to its three hospitals — University of Maryland Shore Medical Centers at Chestertown, Dorchester and Easton — UM Shore Regional Health includes the UM Shore Emergency Center at Queenstown and UM Shore Medical Pavilions at Chestertown, Dorchester, Easton and Queenstown, UM Shore Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at Chestertown, and a broad array of inpatient and outpatient services in locations throughout the five-county region. UM Shore Regional Health will break ground at its newest Medical Pavilion, in Denton, in February 2017.

As a member of UMMS, UM Shore Regional Health is able to enhance its various clinical programs and facilities and facilitate physician recruitment, bringing world-class medical care to the residents of Maryland’s Mid-Shore region. The organization's affiliate, UM Community Medical Group, employs physicians and advanced practice providers in family practice and diverse specialties, including behavioral health, breast health, cardiology, diabetes and endocrinology, internal medicine and palliative care, neurology and sleep medicine, nephrology, neurological surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, otolaryngology, pain management, pediatrics, rehabilitation, surgical and wound care, and urology and continence. These practitioners provide care in office and clinical locations in towns throughout the five-county region, including Cambridge, Centreville, Chestertown, Denton, Easton, Galena, and Queenstown.

UM Shore Regional Health is a partner of ChoiceOne Urgent Care, to provide urgent care services in Denton and Easton.

UM Shore Regional Health’s team possesses the talent, technology, and services to provide powerful medicine close to home while striving to offer a superior patient experience.  Further enhancing the network are the fundraising activities of three strong and active foundations, and the volunteer support of three auxiliary organizations.
