Chestertown Nurses Volunteer for Community First United Methodist Church Table


UM SMC at Chestertown nurses Sandy Prochaska, Rebecca Baxter and Cassandra Price.

In an effort to partner more with the community, Shore Medical Center at Chestertown nurses volunteered with First United Methodist Church, helping to serve at the church’s weekly Community Table on Monday evening, August 5, 2019. At this occasion, dinner is prepared and served for a wide range of local residents. Some depend on the meal financially, and for others, it is a way to not be alone and connect with the community.

“This was a great opportunity for us to serve in a different way,” says Sandy Prochaska, manager, Inpatient and Emergency Department at the hospital. “We really enjoyed the experience and we were touched by how welcoming and grateful the community members were to have us there. We are scheduled for another Monday evening in September and already looking forward to it.”

As part of the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS), University of Maryland Shore Regional Health is the principal provider of comprehensive health care services for more than 170,000 residents of Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, and Talbot counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. UM Shore Regional Health’s team of more than 2,500 employees, medical staff, board members, and volunteers works with various community partners to fulfill the organization’s mission of Creating Healthier Communities Together.

    This is wonderful. Those nurses really care. I have had a couple of experiences in the Emergency Department at Shore Medical Center and it was a great experience. They care, and it shows. This is heartwarming to read.
