Charitable donations are used to: purchase state-of- the-art medical equipment which is used for diagnosis, treatment and  rehabilitation; fund facility improvements and expansions;  provide scholarships for nursing and support staff’s continuing, professional education and certification; and provide community education programs. One hundred percent (100%) of the gifts contributed to us are used right here in this community. The Chester River Health Foundation was established in 1993 and incorporated in 2005, and is a  Maryland not-for-profit charitable corporation exempt from federal taxation under section  501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation is a proud member of the University of  Maryland Medical System and Shore Regional Health.
