About Us

Mid Shore
Health Improvement Coalition

All jurisdictions in Maryland have Local Health Improvement Coalitions to address pressing health issues. In 2021, the five Mid Shore counties banded together to share knowledge and leverage scarce resources.  Workgroups include Diabetes & Healthy Living, Health Equity, Tobacco & Cancer, Telehealth, Health Literacy, and Provider Recruitment and Retention.

The Provider Recruitment and Retention Workgroup is implementing multiple, coordinated strategies to increase the numbers and types of health professionals, such as physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse midwives, social workers, dental hygienists, as well as community health workers who will add capacity to the network of care in the Mid Shore region.

From its stunning natural beauty to its rich cultural heritage, the Mid Shore has something for everyone. We believe that by showcasing all that the area has to offer, we can help attract top talent to the region and improve access to quality healthcare services for the entire local community.
