Choptank Community Health System has reopened its Tilghman Health Center at Tilghman Elementary School to provide primary medical services for Bay Hundred children and adults.
Choptank Health closed its Tilghman Health Center during the pandemic and re-opened on July 19. The Center
serves as an extension to Choptank Health’s Bay Hundred Health Center in St. Michaels, with Gregory Dukes,
CRNP serving as the provider.
The Center is open every other Tuesday from 1 to 4:30 p.m., with new adult and pediatric primary care medical
patients accepted. Choptank Health’s St. Michaels office patients are also being seen at the Tilghman Island
“We are grateful to be able to bring health care closer to the people of Tilghman Island and through the Bay
Hundred region through this partnership with Talbot Schools,” said Choptank Health CEO Sara Rich. “This
extension is especially meaningful because making healthcare more accessible for people across Maryland’s Eastern
Shore is at the heart of everything Choptank Health does. It’s why we’re here.”
“Having accessible healthcare services right on the Island is extremely important for our area residents,” said
Tilghman Island resident Ginny Cornwell. “We’re fortunate to have Choptank Health as a partner in our community
to help people who especially have transportation challenges, for example, or who are managing chronic conditions
and can’t always get up the road.”
