CHESTERTOWN — University of Maryland Shore Regional Health will host two virtual town halls this month. According to a news release, the sessions will focus on UM Shore Regional Health’s unique opportunity to reimagine and reinvent how Marylanders on the Upper Shore access and receive health care.
UM Shore Regional Health, backed by the University of Maryland Medical System, is proposing an approach that would see its Chestertown hospital leverage the state’s designation as a Maryland Rural Hospital as the anchor point to hospital-based care, while bringing more aging and wellness services to Kent County, making access to care even easier.
The two planned webinars will include an in-depth discussion about the future of health care in Kent and Northern Queen Anne’s counties.
The first virtual town hall will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 21. The second listening session will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 29.
UM Shore Regional Health is excited to share its vision for the future and welcomes feedback by participating in one of the virtual town hall sessions or by filling out and submitting the feedback form online, the release states.
