Each year, thousands of patients seek the medical care offered by the physicians, nurses and technicians at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown. Throughout our very special “Maryland Rural Hospital,” our practitioners strive to provide the very best for all of our patients using the latest technology and advancements in medicine, much of which has been funded by the community. Of equal importance is our caregivers’ focus on delivering the highest quality of care with compassion and concern for the well-being of our patients and their families.

Please join us as we celebrate Doctors’ Day (March 30), Nurses Week (May 6-12) and National Hospital Week (May 8 – 14), by making a gift in honor of a special physician, nurse, or caregiver at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown.

On behalf of each and every one of our “everyday heroes,” thank you for celebrating and recognizing our incredible caregivers.


We invite you to make a gift in recognition of your special caregiver and include a personal message of thanks. Within the donation form, check the “Honor a Caregiver” box to write your message for the caregiver you choose to honor. (No mention of your gift amount will be included in the notification sent to your caregiver.)

Your gift will serve as a testament to the work of a trusted caregiver, who deeply appreciates and is inspired by the confidence demonstrated by your generosity; it will directly support the advanced training and patient care initiatives that are so vital to our work.
