Our History

Three Lower Counties Community Services, Inc. was incorporated in 1994 to provide primary medical and dental care to patients in Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester counties in Maryland. Since then, our services have expanded to include care for migrant/seasonal farm workers, mental health, pharmacy, obstetrics and gynecology, urogynecology, maternal-fetal medicine, dental, and pediatrics.

In 2016, we changed our name from Three Lower Counties Community Services to Chesapeake Health Care to more accurately reflect our core mission, which is to provide affordable, culturally competent patient and family-centered health care. As a Community Health Center, we serve the healthcare needs of the three lower counties of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

In 2017, we opened a new OB/GYN facility, which is located in the Woodbrooke Medical Campus in Salisbury. This 26,700 sq. ft. facility has 32 exam rooms. We have providers who specialize in obstetrics, gynecology, urogynecology, and maternal fetal medicine.

Our employee workforce has grown to more than 600 people. In 2023, more than 55,000 patients received healthcare services. We continue to grow and provide exemplary service to our patients.
