– Beginning August 18, 2015, Atlantic General Health System will once again
provide family medicine care in the Snow Hill community. Family Nurse
Practitioner Michelle Farlow will hold office hours two days a week at
the Worcester County Health Department (WCHD) in Snow Hill.
Farlow, who has 16 years of nursing experience, earned a Master of Science
in Nursing from Wilmington University before securing her post-master’s
certificate in family nurse practitioner studies. She is an experienced
nurse educator, having taught nursing students in both clinical and classroom
settings, and served as a public health clinician for more than five years.
Farlow has been providing family medicine care to patients of Atlantic
General Health System for more than three years.
“Offering primary care at the WCHD has been a goal for Atlantic General
Health System since Dr. Lei Gong moved to Ocean Pines in December. We
wanted to maintain a presence in the Snow Hill area to serve those patients
that do not have the ability to travel to see a provider,” said
Jim Brannon, vice president of professional services at Atlantic General
Hospital. “We are grateful for our partnership with the health department,
which has allowed this to happen.”
Farlow is accepting appointments for new patients in Snow Hill on Tuesdays
and Wednesdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 443-728-1030.
She will continue providing walk-in care at the Atlantic Health Center
in Berlin Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
