EAS­TON — Prac­ti­tion­ers who re­cently joined Chop­tank Com­mu­nity Health Sys­tem toured a num­ber of out­pa­tient fa­cil­i­ties of Univer­sity of Mary­land Shore Re­gional Health ear­lier in June, in­clud­ing the Clark Com­pre­hen­sive Breast Cen­ter, the Can­cer Cen­ter, UM Shore Med­i­cal Pavil­ion at Eas­ton and the of­fice of UM Com­mu­nity Med­i­cal Group — Women’s Health (OBGYN).

The group was es­corted by Judy Thomas, re­gional man­ager, Provider Re­fer­ral and Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment for Univer­sity of Mary­land Med­i­cal Sys­tem for the MidShore Re­gion.

CCHS is a pri­vate, non­profit com­mu­nity health cen­ter pro­vid­ing pri­mary health care ser­vices in Caro­line, Dorch­ester and Tal­bot coun­ties and the sur­round­ing ar­eas. CCHS health cen­ters pro­vide a range of pri­mary med­i­cal, den­tal and be­hav­ioral health ser­vices.

The tour, which in­cluded in­tro­duc­tions to sev­eral UM SRH physi­cians, ad­vanced prac­tice providers, prac­tice man­agers and other staff, was ar­ranged as part of the de­vel­op­ing part­ner­ship be­tween UM SRH and CCHS in the in­ter­est of pro­vid­ing ac­cess to qual­ity health care for all Mid-Shore res­i­dents. With Vic­to­ria Billings, CCHS re­gional site di­rec­tor, were new CCHS prac­ti­tion­ers Veron­ica Rigler, Fed­er­als­burg Med­i­cal Cen­ter; Rachel M. Spell­man, Fas­sett-Magee Health Cen­ter; and Ash­ley Tay­lor, Den­ton Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

“The goal of these tours is to en­hance con­ti­nu­ity of care for our shared pa­tients by ed­u­cat­ing com­mu­nity providers about the health care ser­vices of­fered in the Mid-Shore re­gion and mak­ing per­sonal in­tro­duc­tions that will fa­cil­i­tate good com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween med­i­cal ser­vices, prac­tices and providers,” Thomas said.
