Shore Health System staff and leadership joined representatives from the University of Maryland Medical System, Maryland Primary Care Physicians and the Queen Anne’s business community to dedicate Shore Medical Pavilion, located at 125 Shoreway Drive off of Nesbit Road and US Rt. 50 in Queenstown. Over 100 guests attended the dedication, which included a ribbon cutting and tours of the facility.  

Located next to the Queen Anne’s Emergency Center, Shore Medical Pavilion is home to Maryland Primary Care Physicians, which relocated from Stevensville to this more convenient location off of the Nesbit Road exit of US Rt. 50. Other services available in the three-story medical pavilion include diagnostic and laboratory testing, physical and speech therapy, occupational health services and several physician specialty practices including urology, cardiology, neurology and sleep medicine, otolaryngology (ENT). The Regional Sleep Disorders Center also houses a four-bed sleep lab at Shore Medical Pavilion, with additional sites available in Easton and Cambridge. 

“The dedication of Shore Medical Pavilion marks the expansion of Shore Health System’s network of medical care that spans four counties of the Mid-Shore region, including Caroline County, Dorchester County, Talbot County and Queen Anne’s County,” said Ken Kozel, president and CEO for Shore Health System. “We are very excited to be able to bring so many important services to the residents of Queen Anne’s County and are grateful to our team members, University of Maryland partners and the community for their support in the development of this medical campus.”

Kozel added, “I am grateful for the enthusiasm of our physician partners who specialize in a number of areas. They have made the commitment to expand their practice to join us at Shore Medical Pavilion, allowing us to offer convenient access to primary and specialty care in Queen Anne’s County.”
