On the Eastern Shore, we are committed to our way of life… and the people who share it. At University of Maryland Shore Regional Health, we know what it takes to keep our communities healthy. We’ve been caring for families on the Shore for over 100 years, so we know a thing or two about the unique health needs of our communities. 

Today, we are proud to provide comprehensive health care services to more than 175,000 residents of Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot counties. With two hospitals, two freestanding emergency centers, three urgent care centers outpatient and specialty care centers throughout the region, we make sure the health care you need is where you need it — close to home. Our physicians and providers work side by side with University of Maryland School of Medicine specialists to bring a higher level of expertise directly to the communities we serve across the Eastern Shore. 

When you see a UM Shore Regional Health sign, it’s our promise for creating healthier communities, together. No matter where you live, work or play, you don’t have to travel far for advanced health care with a personal touch. It’s here in your own back yard, as it has been for more than a century.
