    Architects for Change:
    Health Care for a Growing Region
                                                 For over 100 years, the hospitals that today make up Shore
                                            Health System have championed change. Science presents
                                            new evidence daily about techniques for delivering innovative
                                            medical care. We have seen how quickly technology becomes
                                            obsolete and how often our facilities require renovation and
                                            expansion. Orchestrating change in a region that is experienc-
                                            ing rapid growth adds even more complexity to an already
                                            complex enterprise.

                                                 Shore Health System, like all other evolving organi-
                                            zations, is a product of its history and an architect of its
                                            future. Our two community hospitals were founded over a
                                            century ago with a mission to serve the health care needs
                                            of the Mid-Shore region. The Memorial Hospital at Easton
                                            was created as Emergency Hospital in 1907 to serve the
    Joseph P. ross and John dillon          residents of Talbot, Caroline and Queen Anne’s Counties.
                                            Dorchester General Hospital, established in Cambridge in 1898,
                                            has been the primary provider of medical services for one of
                                            the most geographically expansive counties in Maryland.

          Shore Health System’s Board of Directors, in partnership with management, looks to the future with
    this same regional perspective. Our commitment to the region includes plans to build a regional medical
    center and to further develop our network of ambulatory care centers close to where people live.

          The region we serve is changing. New residents are moving to the area looking for a lifestyle that
    combines the simple pleasures of rural living and the services available in metropolitan centers. Young
    families and retirees, farmers and watermen live side by side with respect for the past and high hopes
    for the future. And we hear from these people every day that health care tops the list of what makes
    a community attractive and vibrant.

         The needs and expectations of the people our facilities serve are one reason that Shore Health
    System continues to upgrade our facilities even as we go through the process of planning for a new
    regional medical center.

          In 2007, we opened a new 32-bed Emergency Department at Memorial Hospital. This past sum-
    mer, the new Edward B. and Mildred H. Freeman Outpatient Center opened as the new entrance to
    the hospital for outpatient and surgical services. The Memorial Hospital campus is preparing for more
    changes as we move forward with renovations that will accommodate a Joslin Diabetes Center Affili-
    ate at Shore Health System, a renal transplant clinic and an expanded Shore Regional Breast Center.
    At Dorchester General Hospital, we opened the Eastern Shore’s only Balance Center and a major
    expansion and renovation is underway in the Emergency Department to address the growing need
    for services in Dorchester County.

     Our partnership with the University of Maryland Medical System is one way that we balance the
needs of the present with our vision for the future. Being a member of this respected medical system
offers us access to physicians and clinical programs that address diabetes, heart disease, stroke and
the many other health issues facing the people of the Eastern Shore.

       As a member of UMMS, we also can access the capital needed to invest in facilities and technology
which we will use to deliver improved healthcare services in Talbot, Dorchester, Caroline and Queen
Anne’s Counties. With UMMS, Shore Health System is in the process of planning to build a much-needed
Emergency Center in Queen Anne’s County. This freestanding emergency department with all the
technology, skill and services of a hospital-based ER, but without inpatient beds, will be the first such
facility in a rural area of Maryland. We will break ground in early 2009 and open in mid-2010.

     We face many challenges as we move into the next century, both at Shore Health System and as
a community. Environmental issues, population growth, aging residents, healthcare staff recruitment,
disaster readiness and financial sustainability require our constant attention. Like our predecessors
who had the courage and vision to create the Eastern Shore’s first hospitals over 100 years ago, we
have undertaken a rigorous planning process in order to be out in front of the increasing demands
for medical services.

     We face a demanding and exciting future that will continue to be affected by continued growth,
rapid change and advances in technology. As this annual report demonstrates, we have the talent, the
partners and the commitment required to provide timely health care to the citizens of the Mid-Shore.

                                Finding Balance
                                & a new lease on life
                                       Barbara North attributed her first attack of dizziness and nausea to the
                                 mayonnaise in her tuna fish sandwich. Two days later, she had a similar attack
                                 and realized something more serious was going on.
                                       For 10 years, North, who lives in Cambridge, suffered with the symptoms
                                 of vertigo nearly every day of her life. The healthy 70-year-old had to plan her
    life around the unpredictable symptoms of her condition, limiting her travel to public places and living in
    fear of the next attack, which usually sent her to bed.
           “One minute I was fine and the next minute my head was spinning so fast that I had to lie down,”
    North recalls. “I learned to adapt over the years by not turning around or bending over too quickly. But the
    problem with vertigo is that you don’t know when it is going to happen next. It can debilitate your life.”
           In January of 2008, after hearing an advertisement that Shore Health System’s new Balance Center
    had opened at Dorchester General Hospital, North called her family physician and requested a referral.
    That phone call changed her life.
           The Balance Center is part of Shore Health System’s Comprehensive Rehabilitation Care network
    that serves the Mid-Shore region. At the Balance Center, specially trained physical therapists evaluate and
    treat medical conditions that cause balance disturbances, dizziness and falls using the SMART EquiTest.
    This sophisticated technology assesses balance based on a series of physical cues.
           According to Kelly Marchetti, MSPT, Coordinator of the Balance Center, “Mrs. North had one of the
    most severe cases of vertigo we had ever seen. Through a series of balance tests, we determined that all
    three of her balance systems were affected, including her eyesight, her inner ear, and her joints and feet.”
           Armed with this knowledge, the Balance Center staff designed an intensive exercise therapy program
    for North, who visited the Center twice a week over a period of several months. At home, she followed an
    exercise routine as prescribed by the Balance Center staff.
           North comments, “The best thing for me was that the therapy I needed was at my home hospital. I
    know that I wouldn’t have been able to travel any distance to get this treatment.”
           Even though North completed the Balance Center program in May of 2008, she continues her exercises
    at home. She says, “I haven’t had any episodes or nausea since May. That is a great thing.”
           North adds, “Because I live alone, I am more at ease now. I don’t worry anymore about having an
    episode while I am driving or in public places. My daughter, who lives a distance away, has peace of mind
    as well.”
           According to Marchetti, some patients must continue the balance exercises for the rest of their lives
    to manage their conditions. She says, “We have had wonderful results. While we can’t always solve the
    source of the problem, we can help the symptoms in most cases, which means our patients get their qual-
    ity of life back.”

EXPANDING HOSPITAL SERVICES
A new era of emergency care began in 2007, when Memorial Hospital opened a new Emergency Department. The 32-bed unit was designed to
accommodate 60,000 patient visits a year in a 50,000-square-foot addition. While the new facility was being designed and constructed, nurses
and other clinical staff planned for more efficient processes to receive and treat patients so that people, equipment and technology are coordi-
nated to respond to a medical crisis. 1

A ceremonial wall breaking in June of 2008 marked the beginning of a construction project that will expand and renovate the Emergency
Department at Dorchester General Hospital. The ED will grow from 11 to 16 patient treatment areas with two triage beds, a centrally located
nurses’ station, and work space dedicated for physicians and emergency medical services personnel. 2

In August of 2008, the Edward B. and Mildred H. Freeman Outpatient Center became the main entrance to Memorial Hospital for outpatient
and surgical services. The 14,500-square-foot facility was named for the late Edward and Mildred Freeman, whose bequest to the Memorial
Hospital Foundation was the largest bequest from an estate ever received in the history of the hospital. The Freeman Center houses Patient
Registration, Shore Comprehensive Pain Care, the Infusion Center and the Short Stay Unit as well as a phlebotomy area for routine lab services
and therapeutic phlebotomy. 3

Construction began on the Joslin Diabetes Center Affiliate at Shore Health System, an outpatient service scheduled to open in late 2008. The
Joslin Center will offer an interdisciplinary team approach to improving the physical and emotional lives of individuals with diabetes. An
experienced clinical team will focus on medical management, diabetes self-management and nutrition education, as well as psychological and
pharmaceutical counseling.

INVESTING IN SURGEONS AND TECHNOLOGY
In 2007, Shore Surgical Care expanded its team of expert general surgeons, who provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient surgical
services. Specialty surgery, such as X-Stop for pain relief associated with spinal stenosis, hip and knee replacement, and delicate neurosurgery, is
also available at Memorial Hospital. Surgeons on the Shore Health System medical staff are backed by the power of the University of Maryland
Medical System, where world-renowned physicians lead the way for surgical innovations across all medical and surgical specialties.

The Memorial Hospital OR is now equipped with the da Vinci® Surgical System, which is used by a specially trained team to perform mini-
mally invasive surgery for prostate cancer. This highly sophisticated equipment purchased with a $1.6 million gift from the Memorial Hospital
Foundation provides surgeons with enhanced detail and precision, which results in better outcomes for men eligible for the procedure. 4

InterStim® Therapy is now offered at Memorial Hospital as an option for patients suffering from urge urinary incontinence. During the outpa-
tient procedure, a urologist implants a small device, sometimes referred to as a bladder pacemaker, which sends mild electrical pulses to a nerve
that influences the bladder and surrounding muscles that manage urinary function. The electrical stimulation may eliminate or reduce certain
bladder control symptoms.

STATE OF THE ART CANCER CARE
In 2008, Shore Health System added significant power to its comprehensive program for diagnosing and treating breast cancer by installing
the GE Healthcare Senographe digital mammography system at Memorial Hospital, Dorchester General Hospital, and at the Diagnostic and
Imaging Centers in Easton, Denton and Centreville. The Senographe system offers faster mammograms with lower doses of radiation than ever
before. The digital images can be electronically transferred to referring physicians, who rely on the extremely accurate images to make definitive
diagnoses and develop personalized treatment plans. 5

Shore Regional Breast Center welcomed additional surgeons to its comprehensive program designed to escort women and their loved ones
through the many stages of a breast cancer diagnosis.

The Requard Radiation Oncology Center located at Shore Regional Cancer Center in Easton accepted a donation from the Memorial Hospital
Foundation to add a second linear accelerator and image guided radiation therapy technology. This multi-million dollar investment adds capac-
ity to the center to meet the community’s needs for radiation therapy, which is often a vital component of a patient’s cancer treatment plan.

BRINGING SCIENCE TO REHABILITATION
A generous donation to the Memorial Hospital Foundation made it possible for Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services to
purchase the Lokomat® system for Shore Health System’s Outpatient Rehabilitation of Easton. Shore Health System is one of
only two Maryland health systems offering this robotic gait training technology, designed to improve mobility for individuals
following a brain or spinal cord injury and those diagnosed with other neurological conditions, such as stroke, cerebral palsy and
multiple sclerosis. 6

The Eastern Shore’s only Balance Center opened at Dorchester General Hospital, where specially trained physical therapists
work with physicians and their patients to evaluate and treat medical conditions that cause balance disturbances, dizziness
and falls. The technological centerpiece of the Balance Center is the SMART EquiTest®, which uses computerized dynamic
posturography, a clinical tool for evaluating the sensory and motor components of balance. The Balance Center also features
videonystagmography, which is a state of the art technology for evaluating eye-related balance disturbances. 7

A computer-based home exercise system lets Comprehensive Rehabilitation Care physical and occupational therapists document
at-home exercise plans for patients to follow between outpatient visits. The system helps speed recovery, promotes independence
and reduces costs associated with prolonged care.


TAPPING THE POWER OF INFORMATION
All units at Memorial Hospital and Dorchester General Hospital, including the Emergency Departments, now have access to
systems that enable nurses, rehabilitation therapists, respiratory therapists, radiology technologists and other clinical staff to
document patient care information online. With this system widely implemented, physicians and other healthcare providers have
immediate access to patient records. The next major phase of electronic patient record documentation is underway for outpatient
nursing areas. 8

Implementation of the 4 Medica computer system creates an electronic connection between Shore Health System and physi-
cians’ offices. Laboratory result reporting can be sent directly to the physician’s electronic medical record, reducing paper flow
and providing immediate online access to lab results. The interface also allows for online electronic ordering of lab procedures,
providing a simple, legible and accurate test requisition. 9

The Pharmacy staff, in partnership with Information Technology specialists and Nursing staff, is laying the foundation to imple-
ment Bedside Medication Verification (BMV). Planned for implementation in early 2009, BMV is a Shore Health System safety
initiative designed to reduce the likelihood of medication-related errors. This system will enable nurses who administer medica-
tions to electronically connect patient information with prescribed medications through the use of scanning devices.

At Your Service Room Service, a software system that gives hospitalized patients menu choices for meals, is now linked to
electronic medical records maintained on the nursing units. This interface gives dietary staff online access to physicians’ dietary
orders so that only the healthiest menu options are available for each patient.


DELIVERING QUALITY HEALTH CARE
Care Science, an Internet-based quality tool, is being used by members of the Shore Health System Quality team to measure
healthcare outcomes as compared with other hospitals around the country. The Care Science software enables more efficient
production of reports, which the Quality team and medical staff rely on to fine-tune the delivery of patient care and improve
operational and financial performance.

Since 2007, physicians and nurses from Shore Health System, along with their colleagues at the other University of Maryland
Medical System hospitals, have been actively involved in the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s national campaign to
improve prompt identification and treatment of patients with sepsis. Memorial Hospital and Dorchester General Hospital have
already implemented standardized methods of diagnosing and treating patients at risk for this serious blood infection with im-
pressive results.

                                    Finding Meaning
                                    in a crisis
                                 Ruth Arnouts and Melissa Malcolm have something important to say to stroke survivors – life
                                 goes on after stroke.

                                 In October of 2007, just nine days after retiring from her Shore Health System nursing career,
                                 63-year-old Ruth Arnouts suffered a stroke. Recalling the day she had her stroke, Arnouts says,
                                 “Words just came out as gibberish when I tried to tell my husband something about a movie we
                                 were watching on television.”

Recognizing her stroke symptoms helped Arnouts remain calm. She admits, though, “I only felt secure when the hospital’s
‘BAT team’ was at my side.”

The Memorial Hospital Brain Attack Team, referred to as the BAT, goes into action as soon as a call comes in that someone is
experiencing stroke symptoms. The team consists of a neurologist, Emergency Department nurses and physicians, and nurses
trained in stroke care, who all follow a standard approach to stroke diagnosis and treatment.

Arnouts was concerned about her husband while she was a patient in the Memorial Hospital Emergency Department. She was
able to relax when she heard that the hospital team was explaining to him what was happening each step of the way. “By reas-
suring him, I was reassured,” she says.

Today, Arnouts feels the effects of her stroke when she has to speak more slowly to describe something in detail or, on occasion,
when she uses a wrong word. Considering herself extremely fortunate, she views her stroke “as a flashing yellow light telling me
to slow down and take care.”

At 47, Melissa Malcolm was having flu-like symptoms for a couple of days. When she noticed her handwriting sliding off the
page and her face sagging a little, she finally sought medical care. By the time she reached Memorial Hospital, she was having
trouble walking.

“At this point, neither I or my husband even suspected a stroke because we didn’t know the signs or symptoms,” says Malcolm,
“and we didn’t think I was old enough.”

A stroke survivor for over four years, Malcolm credits the team at Memorial Hospital for saving her life. “The greatest gift that
I received during this difficult time was the professional care that I received,” she says. “I felt that I had a community of people
who were treating me with respect and kindness, and who truly wanted me to be healthy again.”

Separately, Arnouts and Malcolm reached out to Shore Health System to form a support group for stroke survivors and their
caregivers. Through collaboration with Christina Ball, RN, CNRN, Coordinator of Shore Health System’s Primary Stroke Cen-
ter, the stroke survivors support group began meeting in 2007.

The support group is an opportunity for stroke survivors and their family members to share their experiences about stroke. They
learn about related health topics and become inspired to move forward after a stroke. Guest speakers are invited to discuss topics
such as diet, physical therapy, medication side effects and depression. The second half of each meeting is open for group mem-
bers to share experiences and garner help from others.

“Both Melissa and I were motivated to start a support group in the hope of helping someone else dealing with life after stroke,” says
Arnouts, “but the strength and perseverance we’re seeing in the other members is truly encouraging us in our journey after stroke.”

For more information about the stroke support group and Shore Health System’s Primary Stroke Center, contact Christina
Ball, 410-822-1000, ext. 5068 or email cball@shorehealth.org.

 health care in the community
 The Shore Health System 2008 Community Forum on Stroke attracted a standing-room-only crowd at the Avalon
 Theatre in Easton. A panel of medical experts from the Primary Stroke Center located at Memorial Hospital dis-
 cussed the warning signs for stroke, prevention techniques, the team approach used to promptly treat a stroke, and a
 comprehensive rehabilitation program that supports individuals following a health crisis. 1

 Through the initiative of Devin Trinkley, RN, FNE-A/P, Coordinator of the Shore Health System Sexual Assault Foren-
 sic Examiner (SAFE) nurse program, Talbot and Dorchester counties now have sexual assault response teams (SART).
 Each SART consists of SAFE nurses, law enforcement officers, victim advocates and prosecuting attorneys, who use a
 victim-centered approach to investigation, evidence collection, emotional support and prosecution.

 Shore Health System stands out in a crowd when staff dressed in red t-shirts travel around the region to participate in com-
 munity health events. Medical experts meet with people of all ages at the Chesapeake Heart Walk, senior celebrations and
 privately sponsored events to offer free health screenings and to discuss the latest developments in stroke care, heart health,
 cancer care, nutrition, medication management, emergency preparedness, wound healing and rehabilitation. 2

 Free health screenings for breast cancer are offered monthly through Shore Regional Breast Center. Annually, during
 prostate cancer awareness month, Shore Regional Cancer Center partners with other health organizations to offer free
 prostate cancer screenings. Both hospital Auxiliaries offer free weekly blood pressure screenings to the public through-
 out the year.

 Nurses carried on a 22-year tradition by volunteering to staff the first aid station at the 2007 Waterfowl Festival.
 Working in pairs throughout the three-day event, over 20 nurses were on hand to respond to medical emergencies. 3

 Physicians from the Shore Health System medical staff as well as nurses and other clinical staff form a speaker’s bureau
 designed to meet with members of business groups, civic organizations, retirement communities and residents’ groups
 to update them on a wide variety of topics. Participants took advantage of these free forums to learn about the trends in
 cancer care, pain management, diabetes, stroke, wound care and sleep disorders.

 In June of 2008, Shore Health System hosted the GE Women’s Health and Wellness Tour, a custom-designed road show
 from GE Healthcare created to educate women about important health issues. Visitors to the display stationed at the
 Easton Wal-Mart received free blood pressure and bone density screenings along with information about heart health,
 breast cancer prevention, nutrition and other health topics of interest to women and their families. 4

 Navigating through a health crisis often requires more than medical intervention. Shore Health System sponsors many
 support groups for patients, their families and caregivers dealing with cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and the loss
 of a child. The support of others who share their personal experiences can help people make informed choices as they
 move through diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

 In 2008, nurses, physicians and volunteers from Shore Health System once again topped the list of Maryland’s Health
 Care Heroes. The late Marie Harkowa was named Maryland’s top winner in the Nurse Health Care Hero category.
 Harkowa was one of 16 Nurse Hero finalists from around the state, which included Sherry Councell, MSN, RN, Nurse
 Support Specialist for Shore Health System, and the nurses of the Memorial Hospital Surgical Unit. Andrew McCarthy,
 MD, Medical Director for Comprehensive Rehabilitation Care, and oncologist Mary DeShields, MD, a member of the
 Shore Health System medical staff, were finalists in the Physician Hero category. The Shore Regional Cancer Center
 volunteers were finalists in the Volunteer Hero category.

                               Supporting the Mission
                               with a common goal
                               The Presidents of the Auxiliaries of Memorial Hospital and Dorchester General Hos-
                               pital share a two-fold mission – fundraising to support programs and services offered
                               by Shore Health System and assisting the staff in a variety of patient care areas. The
                               Presidents also have a common goal – to recruit new Auxiliary volunteers.


Diane McCarthy, a retired nurse and President of the Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary since January of 2008,
says, “I have been reaching out to the community to educate them about the many ways in which the Auxiliary
serves the hospital that so many people depend on for their healthcare needs. When I talk to people, especially new-
comers to the area, about the opportunities we provide for them to be of service, they get excited.”


Joseph Shultz, who was elected President of the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary in June of 2008, says, “There are a lot of
things we can do to support Memorial Hospital with the right people willing to regularly give a few hours of their time.”


The nurses and other clinical professionals who care for patients at Memorial Hospital, Dorchester General Hospital,
Shore Regional Cancer Center and at outpatient centers around the Mid-Shore region rely on Auxiliary volunteers to
greet patients and visitors, escort them to appointments and provide information during a visit.


Volunteers who have a flare for retail sales and service have several opportunities to serve. In Cambridge, the
Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary’s Hospitality Shop has earned a reputation for its high quality gift items and
offers a variety of snacks and a selection of flowers and cards for hospital visitors. The Robin Hood Shop is a year-
round favorite for bargain hunters who travel from around the region for the annual coat, back to school and Christ-
mas sales.


In Easton, the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary volunteers operate the Hospital Gift Shop, where they sell flowers,
snacks, cards and unique gift items. At The Bazaar at 121 Federal Street, an upscale resale shop, volunteers process
donations of gently worn fashions and household items and interact with shoppers looking for anything from a prom
dress to baby clothes.

the auxiliaries:
carrying on a tradition of service
Carole Kramer, a volunteer with the Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary, and Julie Wojcik and Deborah Hayes of
the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary were inducted as officers for the Maryland Association of Hospital Auxiliaries in
April of 2008. They have each held leadership positions within their local hospital auxiliaries over the years and now
expand their roles as advocates for health care volunteerism across the state. 1

Through its 24th annual Tree of Lights fundraising campaign, the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary donated $10,000 to
Memorial Hospital for the purchase of four Medfusion™ syringe pediatric pumps. This equipment, which is avail-
able for physicians and nurses in the Birthing Center, the Pediatrics Unit and the Emergency Department, safely and
effectively delivers intravenous medications to some of the hospital’s smallest and sickest patients. 2

Every year since 1978, the Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary has awarded scholarships to nursing school
students. In 2008, the Nursing Grant Committee presented awards to five area nursing students, bringing the Auxilia-
ry’s 30-year financial support to over 100 nursing scholarships totaling $90,000. The financial aid covers the cost of
tuition, books and other educational expenses.

Auxiliary volunteers have sustained the Patient Advocacy Program in the Emergency Departments at Dorchester
General Hospital and Memorial Hospital for over three years. Specially trained patient advocates make the rounds
between the ED waiting room and the treatment areas to maintain a communication link between patients and their
families. Along with a blanket, a book and games for the children, the volunteers bring back updates from the nurses
and physicians to help relieve the concerns of waiting family members. 3

Now in its 51st year of operation, the Robin Hood Shop is an outlet for people who want to donate gently used
clothing, toys, books and small household items. This merchandise is then re-sold at affordable prices to shoppers
who come from all over the Eastern Shore. The Dorchester General Hospital Auxiliary volunteers who staff the shop
supply creativity and dedication, producing profits that top $30,000 each year. Robin Hood Shop profits represent a
significant percentage of the Auxiliary’s annual gifts to the hospital for equipment and services that benefit people
throughout the region.

The Memorial Hospital Auxiliary’s new resale shop, The Bazaar at 121 Federal Street in Easton, opened in No-
vember of 2007 to rave reviews. Formerly known as the Commission Shop, the resale outlet had been one of the
Auxiliary’s most lucrative fundraisers since beginning operation in 1962. In less than one year, net annual donations
to Memorial Hospital from Bazaar sales increased by more than 40 percent. Bazaar shoppers find reasonably priced
and gently worn formal, business and casual fashions for men and women as well as clothing for children of all ages,
fashion accessories, shoes, toys and an assortment of linens, dishes and glassware. 4

                               Recognizing
                               everyday heroes
                              As a major in the National Guard Medical Service Corps, Robert Twilley of Gra-
                              sonville helped organize transportation for wounded Vietnam War soldiers between
                              Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Wash-
                              ington, DC. When it came to his own health care, however, Twilley never thought he
                              would need the kind of emergency services he provided for his men.

                              Twilley, age 78, recently had a medical emergency that took him on an ambulance ride
from his physician’s office in Centreville to the Emergency Department at Memorial Hospital. “Dr. Eric Ciganek
wanted me to have immediate attention because of the nature of the problem,” he recalls. “What I encountered was
an efficient operation – from the ambulance driver, to the emergency room physicians and staff, to my surgeon. From
my military career, I know how important efficiency is to outcomes when it comes to our health.”

Twilley credits the prompt evaluation of Emergency Department physician Thomas Chiccone, MD, and nurse Lin
Lee Allen, RN, with making him and his wife, Jane, feel informed and cared for during the ordeal. Twilley’s sur-
geon, Jerry Batley, Jr., MD, cared for him and, after five days, Twilley’s condition had improved and he was able to
go home.

Twilley’s wife, Jane, comments, “Everything was taken care of for us at Memorial Hospital. We had always been
well, so being in a hospital was new for us. It was a wonderful experience.”

One day, while waiting in the hospital lobby, Jane Twilley found literature about Shore Health System’s Everyday
Hero Program. She read about how she and her husband could say “Thank You” to the physicians and nurses who
had helped them through their medical crisis. The program enables patients and their families to make tax-deduct-
ible donations to the Memorial Hospital Foundation as a way to recognize the efforts of a person or a whole group.
Donations can also be designated for a specific healthcare service.

“We are careful about where our donations go. We direct our donations to help people and organizations who need it
most,” Twilley explains. He adds, “In this case, Jane and I agreed we needed to acknowledge the kindness, patience
and efficiency of those who cared for us at Shore Health System. We liked the idea we could direct our gift to benefit
the services that we used, so we made donations to Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department and to its third floor
Surgical Unit.”

Julia Marlowe, Vice President of Philanthropy for Shore Health System, comments, “The Everyday Hero Program
gives patients and their families the opportunity to marry their appreciation with a gift, to acknowledge the special
care they received from Shore Health System staff, physicians and volunteers. At the same time, their donations sup-
port us in continuing our mission of Exceptional Care, Every Day.”

     fundraising to enhance
     the quality of life

      The Memorial Hospital Foundation established a fund that commemorates Memorial Hospital’s 100-
      year tradition of providing health care for all residents of the Mid-Shore region. The Century Fund
      for Patient Care is used to support individuals and families who need financial assistance to obtain
      healthcare services


      In September of 2007, 500 guests gathered at the Centennial Celebration Gala to honor The Memorial
      Hospital at Easton for 100 years of service to the community. An evening of gourmet dining and danc-
      ing was topped off with a fireworks display. Thanks to the generosity of the many Gala sponsors, over
      $200,000 was raised for the Century Fund for Patient Care. 1


      The 2007 Aquafina Alive Wellness Water™ Shore Health System Golf Invitational raised more than
      $42,000 for the Century Fund for Patient Care. The 25 foursomes who participated in the tournament
      enjoyed a day on the Talbot Country Club course, a deluxe gift package and a catered lunch followed
      by an awards reception. 2


      The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay was the site of the 2008 Dorchester General Hospital Snow Ball.
      More than 200 guests turned out to dine, dance and raise $82,000 for the Balance Center and the
      Neurological Day Rehabilitation Program, two new services of Shore Health System’s Comprehensive
      Rehabilitation Care. 3

yo u r f i rst choice for healthc are on the eastern shore




        More than 5 million people
         with diabetes share one

   the better you can live. As a leader in diabetes treatment and education, our center provides
   adults with a comprehensive understanding of diabetes, from its early warning signs to all the
   ways it can affect one’s life. We then work together to design a specialized program that fits
   your needs and lifestyle. Diabetes is a complex disease that affects millions of people. The Joslin
   Diabetes Center Affiliate at Shore Health System is committed to giving you the tools you need to
   understand it and live a full, healthy life. For more information, call 410-822-1000.
