AAMC Health Services Kent Island brought increased access and a new level of healthcare to residents of Maryland’s Eastern Shore when it opened in June 2008. Until then, few healthcare providers and services existed in the growing Queen Anne’s County area. Now its residents no longer had to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and travel to Annapolis for health care.
During the planning phase, AAMC met and talked with area residents to find out what types of medical services and care they wanted at the new facility. One direct result: the extended-hours urgent care center staffed by Johns Hopkins Community Physicians in partnership with AAMC. They provide both urgent and primary care at Kent Island treating hundreds of urgent care cases per month.
