Welcome to Shore Health System's Center for Integrative Medicine
The Center for Integrative Medicine, established in the year 2000, is a department of Shore Health System, which in turn is part of the University of Maryland Medical System. Our mission is to provide the best possible health care to our patients, and to do so in a warm, personal, and caring way. One of our strengths is that all treatments are monitored for quality by the manager in order to promote safety and quality of our work. In addition, further oversight is provided by a Board of Advisors which includes a number of Shore Health System doctors. All aspects of our program, including infection control and patient management, are monitored for quality and safety in strict accordance with national hospital standards, including those of the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Hospital Organizations (JCAHO) which provides accreditation to all hospitals in the U.S.
As ranked by a national healthcare survey, we consistently earn 97-98% patient satisfaction scores. We welcome you to the Center, and hope that your experience is productive and satisfying.
A Variety of Services
The following information is offered to give you a sense of the wide range of services and opportunities available at the Center. We believe that one the benefits of the Center is that different types of treatment can be combined to help increase the chances of a successful outcome for you. We have found that using a combination of the various services can be useful for many individuals.
Every method, whether conventional or holistic, has its strengths and limitations. So combining different treatments can help with the speed of progress and the effectiveness of each treatment's effects. We generally advise, however, that you start with one method for about a month before adding another, so your practitioners can tell which method is responsible for your progress.
