University of Maryland Shore Regional Health will open Shore Medical Pavilion at Easton in January 2015 as the home of multiple University of Maryland Shore Medical Group physician practices in one convenient location.
UM Shore Regional Health has secured space in what is known as Achievement Park at 500 Cadmus Lane, just off Idlewild Avenue in Easton. The construction project, totaling 60,000 square feet of space, is expected to commence by the beginning of June 2014. It will consist of two phases, the first of which is expected to be completed by January, 2015.

Additional practices will move into the remaining space after the completion of the second phase of the project, which is anticipated to be completed within the next 18 months.
