Choptank Community Health System expands with Chestertown Health Center

Choptank Community Health System has expanded into Kent County with a new facility in Chestertown.

The community health center at 126 Philosophers Terrace provides primary care and behavioral health care.

Choptank Community Health System and UM Shore Regional Health announced in April 2021 their partnership to expand healthcare in Kent and Queen Anne counties.

Medical services include primary health care, women’s health, pediatrics, behavioral health, chronic health management, and care navigation.

Choptank Health will add a mobile care unit in 2023 as part of the new health center’s services, which will be used to help reach the population outside Chestertown, including those living in Millington, Galena and Betterton. Dental services will be available at Chestertown Health Center in 2024.

In addition, Choptank Community Health System has opened its first Kent County School-Based Health Center at Rock Hall Elementary School. The center is made possible through partnerships with Kent County Public Schools, Kent County Health Department, and Maryland Department of Health.

The School-Based Health Center provides personalized, virtual, quality, and urgent care during the school year and during the summer months, requiring student enrollment. Other services include health education and risk assessment, sports and other physical examinations, dietary support, asthma management, and ailing or acute care.

Choptank Community Health System provides medical, dental and school-based health services to more than 30,000 adults and children in Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot counties, with a mission to provide access to exceptional, comprehensive and integrated health care for all. In addition to accepting most major insurance plans, Choptank participates in Medicare and Medicaid and offers a sliding fee scale to uninsured patients.
