Shore Health System expanded its services in Queen Anne’s County when the Shore Medical Pavilion opened at 125 Shoreway Drive in Queenstown on December 5.
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.
“The Shore Medical Pavilion adds primary and specialty medical services to Shore Health System’s Queen Anne’s County campus, where the Queen Anne’s Emergency Center opened in October of 2010,” says Michael Silgen, Vice President of Strategic Planning and Business Development for Shore Health System. “Opening this new medical facility is an opportunity for the University of Maryland Medical System to become the healthcare provider of choice for Queen Anne’s County and expands the array of medical services that Shore Health System offers in the Mid-Shore region.”
Also open at Shore Medical Pavilion is a Shore Health System outpatient diagnostic center, equipped to perform x-rays, digital mammography, bone density scans, diagnostic ultrasound, electrocardiograms and MRI scans. Patients can also bring prescriptions for laboratory tests to the diagnostic center.

Shore Rehabilitation Services has doubled its treatment space and added several pieces of state of the art equipment used in physical and speech therapy sessions with people of all ages.
Shore Works will begin offering occupational health services for employers who require pre-employment testing and whose employees need medical care for work-related injuries.
