30th Annual
Golf Tournament Fundraiser

May 31, 2024

Chester River Yacht & Country Club
7738 Quaker Neck Road • Chestertown, MD

Our annual golf tournament raises funds for the highest priority project or equipment to benefit the people proudly served at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown. Proceeds from this event will be used to purchase a new MRI. Funding a $1.3 mil MRI for the hospital is a “heavy lift” but its state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities are essential for our rural community. To accommodate anxious and larger people, our new MRI will have a short “bore” (the tube in which the patient lies). It will have the largest opening on the market (80 cm vs. the current 60 cm). It can accommodate patients weighing up to 700 pounds (vs. 250-275 today), and its table lowers to 48 cm for ease of access for petite and ambulatory-challenged individuals.

This MRI will also have a new diagnostic procedure to identify cancer – an MRI of the breast. This examination is particularly important for younger women due to their having denser breast tissue. This exam will be an exceptional addition to the breast services we currently offer. Alone, the components to provide this test cost $25,000! These diagnostic capabilities are a VERY big deal for our community!

Our 2024 tournament is proudly sponsored by the
Chester River Hospital Center Auxiliary
